    STATE, LOCAL OR TRIBAL EMERGENCY OPERATION CENTERS

    Fiscal Year 2010 Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Grant Program

     

    The purpose of this Request for Applications is to solicit applications

    for federal grant funding made available from the U.S. Department

    of Homeland Security's Fiscal Year 2010 Emergency Operations

    Center (EOC) Grant Program (Program) through the New York

    State Office of Homeland Security (OHS). This Program provides

    funding intended to improve emergency management and preparedness

    capabilities by supporting flexible, sustainable, secure and

    interoperable EOCs with a focus on identified deficiencies and needs.

    To be considered for funding, eligible EOCs must be a primary

    State, local or tribal Emergency Operations Center located in the State

    of New York. Recognizing the limited amount of competitive funding

    available in FY 2010, consideration will be given to EOC projects that

    are not already receiving prior years' EOC Grant Program and/or

    Emergency Management Performance Grants (EMPG) Program

    funding.

     

    Funds must be spent in compliance with rules and regulations noted

    in the Federal EOC Guidance and Application Kit.

    Applications will be accepted through 11:59 pm January 25, 2010

    through the State's electronic grants management system (E-Grants).

    For grant guidance, application requirements and instructions,

    contact: Office of Homeland Security at the above address, or call

    1-866-837-9133 or e-mail: grants@security.state.ny.us
