Grant Management

Grant Management is a core program within NEMA for supporting local county emergency management agencies in the enhancement of their programs. Since 1999, NEMA has been the designated State Administrative Agency (SAA) for all homeland security grants coming into the State from the Department of Homeland Security. In this role NEMA is responsible for filing the state application, distributing program guidelines to the state and local level agencies, receiving applications, maintaining oversight and compliance monitoring, and facilitating the distribution of funds.
