Total Funding Available in FY 2011: $14,101,736
Purpose: The Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program (RCPGP) provides funding to enhance catastrophic incident preparedness in selected RCPGP sites. RCPGP is intended to support coordination of regional all-hazard planning for catastrophic events, including the development of integrated planning communities, plans, protocols, and procedures to manage a catastrophic event. In FY 2011, RCPGP will focus on demonstrating the progress made by the 10 RCPGP sites, identifying remaining gaps, and implementing the Whole Community Philosophy, which ensures the engagement of the entire community in the planning process. Grantees will also be encouraged to focus on improving catastrophic plans already under development through the use of a “meta-scenario” that draws from the largest planning factors contained within the hazards previously identified by the site as the basis for their planning efforts. Finally, these funds will be used to complete efforts initiated under previous RCPGP awards. The program deliverables submitted from RCPGP grantees will be made available throughout the country to enhance national resilience.
Eligible Applicants: The SAA is the only entity eligible to apply to FEMA for RCPGP funds. The Governor of each state and territory is required to designate a SAA to apply for and administer the funds awarded under RCPGP. Eligible applicants under the FY 2011 RCPGP include the existing Regional Catastrophic Planning Teams and associated sites.
Program Awards: FY 2011 RCPGP funds will be allocated through a single non-competitive award to each of the existing Regional Catastrophic Planning Teams and associated sites, provided their applications meet the minimum standards specified for FY 2011.
