Managing the Award

This page provides managment requirements for the HMGP award and PDM and FMA grants.

HMGP Award Management

All Recipients shall develop a plan for the administration of the HMGP. The minimum administrative plan must include Quarterly Progress Reports (QPRs) to the FEMA Regional Administrator on any approved and open projects. QPRs are only required once the award has been awarded to the recipient.  As directed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), a new quarterly report input form (SF-425) has replaced the SF-269, SF-269A, SF-272, and SF-272A.

The HMGP Quarterly Reporting Workflow Process

Recipients are required to submit completed QPRs 30 days after the end of each fiscal quarter.

  • Quarter One ends December 31
  • Quarter Two ends March 31
  • Quarter Three ends June 30
  • Quarter Four end September 30

FEMA distributes updated quarterly Excel spreadsheets to the corresponding non-Federal entities (i.e., Recipient). These spreadsheets are pre-populated to indicate the projects that require QPRs. The Recipient coordinates with its subrecipients to collect project information to update the fields of the spreadsheet.  If the Recipients have access to NEMIS (Option 2), they may import the spreadsheets into NEMIS. The data imported from the spreadsheets parallels the NEMIS QPR module. The Recipient will still have to save and submit the data in NEMIS to finalize the QPRs. 

If the Recipient does not have access to NEMIS, they must return the spreadsheets to FEMA (Option 3). 

FEMA does not require any Recipients to use the spreadsheets; users may directly enter the data into the QPR module in NEMIS (Option 1).

Recipients have three options to submit QPRs. If you do not have access to NEMIS you must use Option 3.

  • Option 1:  Enter Data Directly into NEMIS – Login to NEMIS, access the Quarterly Reports module, and manually enter the data into the module.
  • Option 2:  Import Data from Excel Spreadsheet into NEMIS – Refer to the question  How do I access the Quarterly Reports module? and How do I import spreadsheets into NEMIS? for a full description of this process.
  • Option 3: Deliver Excel Spreadsheet to FEMA – This option is used for those Recipients that do not have access to NEMIS. FEMA will distribute pre-populated Excel spreadsheets at the end of the fiscal quarter. These spreadsheets should be completed and returned to FEMA. Recipients should be in contact with their corresponding Regional FEMA office to verify the best practice for delivery (e.g., email, direct file transfer, etc.).

PDM and FMA Grant Management

PDM and FMA grant Recipients and subrecipients must maintain records of all work and expenditures.  This information must be submitted to FEMA in quarterly financial and performance reports. Recipients are required to submit these reports 30 days after the end of each fiscal quarter.

  • Quarter One ends December 31
  • Quarter Two ends March 31
  • Quarter Three ends June 30
  • Quarter Four end September 30

Recipients must use the Standard Form 425 – Federal Financial Report (SF-FFR 425) to submit their quarterly financial reports, and this form must be submitted using the Payment and Reporting System (PARS). Recipients must use the Standard Form – Performance Progress Report (SF-PPR) to submit their progress reports and this form must be submitted via the eGrants system.

For more information on quarterly reporting, please see the HMA Guidance Part VI – E.
