Dept. of Homeland Security - Multi-State and National Earthquake Assistance. Deadline: 6/1/22.
Fiscal Year 2022 Multi-State and National Earthquake Assistance
Description: The National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program NEHRP seeks to mitigate earthquake losses in the United States through basic and directed research and implementation activities in the fields of earthquake science and engineering. NEHRP is a multi-agency program consisting of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), FEMA, the United States Geological Survey (USGS), and the National Science Foundation (NSF). The NEHRP program supports the mission area of the FY20-24 DHS Strategic Plan titled "Strengthen Preparedness and Resilience," as well as the national preparedness goal of mitigation, as provided in the Presidential Policy Directive (PPD-8). NEHRP also supports the FEMA 2022-2026 Strategic Plan, by contributing to the accomplishment of Strategic Goal 3: Promote and Sustain a Ready FEMA and Prepared Nation. The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity is to provide grant funding to non-profit organizations and institutions of higher education who possess the expertise and experience necessary to develop and deliver multi-State and National earthquake mitigation and preparedness products and services (See Appendix A.), on behalf of States participating FEMA NEHRP State Assistance program (See Appendix D.). This NOFO funds Multi-State and National activities and is not intended to provide assistance to any one particular State or Territory. Those activities are funded through the FEMA NEHRP Individual State Earthquake Assistance grant program and require individual States to provide a 25% Cost Share. All activities funded by the FEMA NEHRP, Multi-State and National Earthquake Assistance grant program must be consistent with NEHRP Vision, Mission, Goals and FEMA Program Responsibilities (See Appendix C.), and ultimately result in a measurable enhancement of National seismic safety and earthquake risk awareness.
