Grant Guidance for Emergency Operations Centers Posted

On June 13, FEMA released the Grant Guidance and Application kit for the FY 2008 Emergency Operations Center Grant Program. A total of $14,572,500 is available for construction or renovation of a State, local, or tribal government's principal Emergency Operations Center (EOC).  Application period opens on June 13 and  closes July 28, 2008.  25% match is required. The State Administrative Agency (SAA) is the only eligible entity able to apply for the available funding on behalf of qualified State, local, and tribal EOCs. The funding is not intended for State fusion centers.


The Grant Guidance and Application kit, the Program Investment Justification Template,  and the grant program frequently asked questions (FAQ)  are available on the IAEM web site at


The Colorado EOC Grant will be managed by CDEM and any grant guidance will be coming from that office. The grant will be managed similar to the EMPG. The state SAA will be meeting with CDEM after the applications are received to prioritize the projects received in accordance with the State Strategy. If you have any questions, the points of contact at CDEM are Bob Wold and Bill Archambault at 720-852-6600.
