This section of the site contains information on preparedness grants funding provided by FEMA to state, local, tribal and territorial governments in the form of non-disaster grants. Preparedness and other grant programs support our citizens and first responders to ensure that we work together as a nation to build, sustain and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate all hazards. These grants support our grantees develop and sustain capabilities at the state and local, tribal and territorial levels and in our nation’s highest-risk transit systems, ports and along our borders to prevent, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate terrorism and other high-consequence disasters and emergencies.
