Public Assistance: Grantee

Main Content

Roles and Responsibilities

Grantee is the term given to a State government, in some instances, an Indian Tribal government, to which the grant is awarded (see Native American Indian Tribes). The grantee is accountable for the use of the funds provided by FEMA and is responsible for disbursing those funds to the subgrantee (applicant).

The grantee is also responsible for providing technical advice and assistance to eligible applicants, ensuring that all potential applicants are aware of the available assistance programs, providing support for damage assessment operations, supporting project identification activities (including large and small project identification and validation of small projects), and submitting the necessary paperwork for grant awards.
