During the Year 1 application period, FEMA will provide technical assistance to support entities during the grant application process as well as provide ongoing support for entity revolving loan funds related to programmatic requirements, including performance reporting and environmental reviews.
FEMA will utilize a variety of methods and platforms to provide technical assistance to entities throughout the application period, including but not limited to:
- Fact sheets and guidance materials,
- Webinars and pre-recorded instructional videos,
- Office hours, and
- FAQ and the program email inbox.
Technical assistance can be leveraged to support the development of application materials, including an entity’s Intended Use Plan and project proposal list.
If an eligible entity is interested in assistance with their capitalization grant application, they should contact the team at FEMA-STORMRLF@fema.dhs.gov.
