FY11 EMPG Recipient Subgrant Guide for Local Governments


Slide4 l.jpg

  • The Financial Management Forms Workbook (FMFW) will now be used for the application process, revision requests, and reimbursement requests.

  • The FY11 EMPG performance period for local

    governments will be July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012.

  • Submit all grant application components to Cal EMA

    Regions by September 16, 2011.

  • Regional Offices will complete a thorough review of applications and forward to the Office of Grants Management to by September 30, 2011.


Slide5 l.jpg

Required Application Components:

The application must include the following 6 components:

  • Financial Management Forms Workbook

  • Project Contact Information Sheet

  • FY11 Emergency Management Program Grant Application Checklist

  • Governing Body Resolution

  • Grant Assurances

  • NIMS Compliance Certification

    The Forms can be accessed from Appendix D of the Recipient Subgrant Guide

    for Local Governments or located on the Cal EMA website.


Slide6 l.jpg

  • The Project Contact Information Sheet will need to be submitted to provide a list of contacts for FY11 EMPG.

  • A new Grant Application Checklist has been created for the FY11 EMPG program and is a required element of the application packet. Cal EMA Regional Offices will complete the checklist and submit it with the Operational Area’s application. The Operational Areas are encouraged to utilize this checklist as a reference to ensure all elements are completed before submitting the application.

  • The Governing Body Resolution appoints agents authorized to execute grant activities. The grant cannot be placed into award until a Resolution is completed and submitted. Ideally, this should be included when submitting the FY11 EMPG application packet.

  • The Grant Assurances Form lists the requirements to which the OA will be held accountable. OAs are required to file a new Grant Assurances form with the FY11 EMPG application.

  • The NIMS Certification form must be signed by the authorized agent and submitted with the application.


Slide7 l.jpg

Optional Application Components:

  • Excess Funds Statement Form:

    While developing an application, any excess funds should be identified and returned to Cal EMA so the funds can be reallocated to other Operational Areas. In this case, it will be necessary to complete and submit the Excess Funds Statement Form to your Regional Office by the application due date.

  • Additional Project Using Excess Funds Form & Additional Project Using Excess Funds Detailed Budget:

    These documents are used to reallocate the returned funds. We are asking the OAs to submit one-time projects they would like to accomplish. Having these projects submitted during the application process will allow Cal EMA’s Office of Grants Management to add the funds to your annual EMPG award, should they become available.


Slide8 l.jpg

  • The completed original hard copy of the FMFW V1.11 and all required application forms must be mailed in to the Cal EMA Regional Office by the Application Due Date. Signatures must be in blue inkonly. In order to streamline the process, Operational Areas will need to electronically submit the completed FMFW to the EMPG Regional lead prior to signing and submitting a hard copy, in order to identify any corrections that may need to be addressed.

  • Cal EMA Regional Leads are responsible for maintaining a hard copy file of all completed FY11 EMPG application documents for each OA for tracking and monitoring purposes.

  • Cal EMA will notify the OA, in writing, of the approved application, award amount, and performance period. Please note that subgrantee reimbursements will not be made until all required application components have been approved by the state and all conditional holds removed.


Slide9 l.jpg

Environmental Planning and Historic Preservation (EHP):

  • Any project with the potential to impact natural or biological resources or historic properties or involves Emergency Operation Center construction and renovation cannot be initiated until FEMA has completed the required Environmental Planning and Historic Preservation (EHP) review.

  • Subgrantees should submit the FEMA EHP Screening Form to the appropriate Cal EMA Regional Office for each project as soon as possible upon receiving their grant award. Refer to IBs 329, 345, and 356 (located at http://www.fema.gov/government/grant/bulletins/index.shtm) and Section II, Part I.B.5.5.6 for further details on EHP requirements.


Slide10 l.jpg

  • The priority for FY11 EMPG programs are to advance “Whole Community” Security and Emergency Management.

  • To address the priority, four Federally Mandated Objectives have been identified. Objectives one through four are requirements of Cal EMA (State/Grantee).

  • Objectives three and four will be required by the Operational Areas (Subgrantees/Local Levels).

  • Objectives three and four have been given a performance measure and reporting requirements which have been added to the Performance Report.


Slide11 l.jpg

Objective Three: Develop and Maintain Multi-Year Training

and Exercise Plans (TEPs):

  • Subgrantees are required to develop a Multi-Year TEP and update it annually.

  • Subgrantees are encouraged to post their schedules to the National Exercise Scheduling System (NEXS). The instructions for data submission can be located at: https://hseep.dhs.gov/pages/Using_the_Scheduling_Standard_Worksheet.aspx.

  • A summary of all collected corrective action items and a tracking of their implementation shall be reported as part of the EMPG Program quarterly reporting.


Slide12 l.jpg

Objective Three: Develop and Maintain Multi-Year Training

and Exercise Plans (TEPs) continued:

  • All EMPG Program funded personnel shall participate in no less than three exercises in a 12-month period.

  • An After Action Report/Improvement Plan (AAR/IP) shall be completed for each exercise and submitted to FEMA.


Slide13 l.jpg

Objective Three: Develop and Maintain Multi-Year Training

and Exercise Plans (TEPs) continued:

  • Subgrantees must report quarterly in the EMPG Program Performance Report the percent completion of the progressive exercise series to include percent completion of personnel participation.

  • TEPs should be Emailed to Cal EMA Exercise Division POCs no later than August 31st each year (this gives us time to roll it into our State TEP).

    • Southern region OAs and UASIs – Rich Mifsud: [email protected]

    • Coastal region OAs and UASIs – Kevin Leisher: [email protected]

    • Inland region OAs and UASIs – Sharon Avery: [email protected]

    • State Agencies/Departments: - Lt Col Chuck Pratt: [email protected]


Slide14 l.jpg

Objective Four - Target Training and Verify Capability of

Personnel:

  • To ensure the development of a professional emergency management workforce all EMPG Program funded personnel shall complete eleven (11) training requirements and record proof of completion:

    National Incident Management System (NIMS) Training:

    IS 100, IS 200, IS 700, IS 800

    FEMA Professional Development Series:

     IS 139, IS 230.a, IS 235.a, IS 240.a, IS 241.a, IS 242.a, IS 244.a


Slide15 l.jpg

Objective Four - Target Training and Verify Capability of

Personnel continued:

  • Subgrantees are required to share with Cal EMA a TEP that includes a progressive exercise plan and schedule and a plan for training personnel.

  • Submission of a list of EMPG funded personnel along with the training completed to be included in the EMPG Program quarterly reporting.

  • Quarterly reporting of implementation of TEP, including percent addressed in the FY 2011 EMPG Performance Report.


Slide16 l.jpg

Eligible Activities - Management and Administrative Costs:

  • M&A costs are allowable for Operational Areas. OAs may retain and use up to 5% of their subawardfrom the State for OA M&A purposes.

  • M&A activities are those defined as directly relating to the management and administration of EMPG funds, such as financial management and monitoring. It should be noted that salaries of local emergency managers are not typically categorized as M&A, unless the OA chooses to assign personnel to specific M&A activities.


Slide17 l.jpg

Eligible Activities - Planning:

  • FY 2011 EMPG funds may be used for a range of emergency management planning activities. Planning provides a methodical way to engage the whole community in thinking through the life cycle of potential crises, determining required capabilities, and establishing a framework for roles and responsibilities. Planning must include participation from all stakeholders in the community who are able to contribute critical perspectives and may have a role in executing the plan. Planning should be flexible enough to address incidents of varying types and magnitudes.


Slide18 l.jpg

Eligible Activities – Organization:

  • EMPG funds may be used for all-hazards emergency management operations, staffing, and other day-to-day activities in support of emergency management. Proposed staffing activities should be linked to achieving goals outlined in the EMPG FMFW. To ensure adequate resources are dedicated to the critical components of preparedness, subgrantees are encouraged to fund at least one dedicated Planner, Training Officer, and Exercise Officer. Personnel costs, including salary, overtime, compensatory time off, and associated fringe benefits, are allowable costs.


Slide19 l.jpg

Eligible Activities – Equipment:

  • Allowable equipment categories are listed on the web-based version of the Authorized Equipment List (AEL) on the Responder Knowledge Base (RKB) at http://www.rkb.us. Unless otherwise stated, equipment must meet all mandatory regulatory and/or FEMA-adopted standards to be eligible for purchase using these funds.

  • OAs should consider taking advantage of the 1033 and/or the 1122 Procurement Programs available through Cal EMA for equipment needs. These programs offer significant savings and access to free Federal surplus for public safety agencies.


Slide20 l.jpg

Eligible Activities – Equipment continued:

1122 Program:

The 1122 Program is a federal program authorized through the National Defense Authorization Act which allows state and local governmental agencies to purchase equipment and supplies suitable for Counter Drug, Homeland Security and Emergency Response activities. This program affords state and local agencies the opportunity to take advantage of significant discounts available to the Federal Government due to its large volume purchases. By using this system, agencies are able to maximize their budget/grant dollars.

Contact: Cathy Vigil (916) 324-8578 [email protected] or Barrett Benson (916) 324-9161 [email protected] for more information.

1033 Program:

The National Defense Authorization Act authorizes the Secretary of Defense to transfer excess Department of Defense personal property to federal, state, and local Law Enforcement Agencies at no cost other than shipping.


Slide21 l.jpg

Homeland Defense Equipment Reuse (HDER) Program:

The mission of the HDER Program is to provide emergency responder agencies nationwide access to an inventory of items that are no longer needed by the Federal Government. Items are refurbished and provided at no cost to the recipient. Provision of items helps ensure that emergency responders are equipped to properly detect, prevent, respond, and recover from a national security threat.

For further information or to sign up for this program, go to http://hder.oro.doe.gov/.


Slide22 l.jpg

  • Other Authorized Equipment (Category 21)


Slide23 l.jpg

Eligible Activities – Training:

Allowable training-related costs include the following:

  • Training should foster the development of a community oriented approach to emergency management that emphasizes engagement at the community level, strengthens best practices, and provides a path toward building sustainable resilience.


Slide24 l.jpg

Eligible Activities – Exercises:

  • Exercises implemented with grant funds should evaluate performance of the

    capabilities required to respond to the exercise scenario. Exercise activities

    should align to a current, Multi-Year TEP developed through an annual Training and Exercise Plans Workshop. Subgrantees are encouraged to develop exercises that test their Emergency Operations Plans.


Slide25 l.jpg

Eligible Activities – Exercise continued:

Unauthorized exercise-related costs include:

  • Reimbursement for the maintenance and/or wear and tear costs of general use vehicles (e.g., construction vehicles) and emergency response apparatus (e.g., fire trucks, ambulances).
