The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) aims to improve the management and administration of its preparedness grant programs to continue to assist the nation in building and sustaining capabilities to prevent, prepare for, protect against, and respond to terrorist attacks and other hazards. FEMA is issuing this Notice and Request for Information (RFI) to seek public input on simplifying and streamlining its preparedness grant process to improve the efficiency and accessibility of its suite of preparedness grant programs. FEMA requests Tribal Leader feedback to improve management and administration of grant programs by simplifying application processes and improving customer service, while ensuring greater accessibility and equity. Learning from our Tribal Nations and Tribal Organizations is vital to understanding the best strategy for improving the administration and management of preparedness grant programs for our Tribal partners. We invite you to attend our virtual tribal consultation on Sept. 20, 2023, from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time (ET). During this consultation, we will seek tribal input on improving grants administration. Comments are due November 7, 2023.
