FY 2009 Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program Guidance

The Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program (RCPGP) is an important part of the larger, coordinated effort to strengthen homeland security preparedness. RCPGP helps to implement objectives addressed in a series of post-9/11 laws, strategy documents, plans and Homeland Security Presidential Directives (HSPDs). FEMA expects our State, local and tribal partners – including recipients of RCPGP grants – to be familiar with this National Preparedness architecture and to incorporate elements of this architecture into their planning, operations and investments. Consistent with Annex I to HSPD-8, each priority must integrate as appropriate all mission areas (i.e., prevention, protection, response, and recovery). Plans developed must be consistent with the guidance in Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG)-101 and be able to integrate with Federal regional plans developed under the Integrated Planning System (IPS). The National Preparedness Guidelines and its supporting documents were published in final form and released on September 13, 2007.
