19FD-01-URAT - Rations, Unit-Feeding


Unit-feeding rations are shelf-stable, pre-cooked meal systems designed to support functional units in the field. These unit meals are designed to be deployed after the initial logistical supply stream has been developed, but before a formal Food Unit with onsite meal preparation capabilities is in place. Normally, this would be between 24 and 72 hours from the start of initial deployment.

Grant Notes:

Prior to the allocation of grant funds for stockpiling purposes, each state must have FEMA?s approval of a five-year viable inventory management plan which should include a distribution strategy and related sustainment costs if planned grant expenditure is over $100,000.
