FEMA Accepting Applications for Continuing Training Grants Program
IAFC On Scene: June 15, 2012
FEMA has announced that agency is now accepting applications for the FY 2012 Continuing Training Grants (CTG) program (pdf 280K). The program's purpose is to develop and deliver a national training program that provides tailored, specialized training courses in three areas that will focus on whole community inclusive planning, cybersecurity and complex attacks.
The CTG program will provide $3,793,600 in grant funding to improve the nation’s readiness to prevent, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate against terrorist attacks, major disasters and other emergencies. Funding for each of the three focus areas will not exceed $1,264,533.33 per area.
The program is a competitive grant program with a period of performance of 36 months. The funding for the one-year solicitation was authorized by the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2012. Funding will be provided in the form of cooperative agreements awarded directly to selected applicants. Final awards will be announced by the end of the current fiscal year.
Eligible applicants for the FY 2012 CTG program include state, local, tribal and territorial governments; nonprofit associations and organizations, including community and faith-based organizations, with a demonstrable expertise relevant to the focus area for which grant funding is being requested; and nonprofit higher-education institutions with existing programs that address the focus area for which grant funding is requested.
Applicants can apply for funding in more than one identified focus area. Applications can be found on Grants.gov. Applicants must submit completed applications, including a nine-page concept paper, no later than 11:59 p.m. EST, on July 3, 2012.
Ann Davison, CAE, is the strategic information manager for the IAFC.
