Non-Disaster Grants Management System

The Non-Disaster Grants Management System (ND Grants) is a web-based system intended to provide the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and its stakeholders with a system that supports the grants management lifecycle.

ND Grants represents a multi-year effort by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), FEMA Grant Programs Directorate (GPD) and the FEMA Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO). GPD is committed to providing an effective system that is collaboratively developed, provides user-friendly workflow, and supports FEMA with mission-critical activities.


The system is being implemented via phased approach where system functionality is released to coincide with stakeholders need for the functionality.

ND Grants includes all the functionality of the current grants management systems and offers new functionality. Below is a summary of the new functionality:

  • Organization Management and Task Assignment Services
  • Application Submission
  • Award Review and Acceptance
  • Amendment Submission
  • Performance Reports Submission
  • Mail Center

What are the System Benefits?

During the development of ND Grants, GPD gathered input, best practices, and lessons learned from FEMA grantors and grantees, as well as other external FEMA grant stakeholders. ND Grants will offer grantors and grantees the following benefits:

Internal Grantor Users

  • Provide a user friendly interface that clearly highlights pending actions
  • Automate and standardize processes to manage the grants management lifecycle while allowing program specific functionality
  • Improve integration with key systems, such as, to automatically retrieve and share grant application data


  • Provide a user friendly interface that clearly highlights pending actions
  • Reduce the burden of application completion by pulling in and pre-populating applications with grantee’s submission
  • Provide quicker acknowledgements of receipt of application materials and other relevant documents

User Resources

The following supplemental guidance is available to provide grantees and users with information on registering and using the Non-Disaster Grants System.
