Emergency Management Performance Grant

OEM provides funding assistance to local city, town and county emergency management programs through the Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) program. In order to receive EMPG funds, local jurisdictions must meet certain performance goals within their programs.

The EMPG program is funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and has a minimum 50 percent local cost-share requirement. Today the program continues to help build better prepared communities through strong local emergency
management programs.

Since 2000 alone, OEM has delivered more than $15 million in EMPG funds to local emergency management programs across the state.
