This page features information about the Region II Grants Division and the resources and support it provides.
The primary audience for this page includes non-federal entities. A non-federal entity includes a state, local government, tribal nation, Institution of Higher Education (IHE), or a nonprofit organization that carries out a federal award as a recipient or sub-recipient.
The Grants Division has primary financial monitoring oversight of preparedness, disaster and mitigation awards. It acts as the gatekeeper to ensure that the financial assistance allocated to our awardees is appropriately and cost effectively applied to build our region’s capability and capacity to address their vulnerabilities to threats and hazards.
Our communities are our most valuable asset and it is our intent to foster a climate that supports transparency, accountability and results.
