Grants to Florida local governments, tax districts, IHEs, regional planning councils, and Tribes for volunteer emergency-readiness programs in local communities. Funding is intended to support the costs of equipment, exercise, training, and management and administrative expenses. The goal of the programs is to engage citizens in all-hazards prevention, protection, response, and recovery. Interested parties may apply for funding for a CERT program, a Citizen Corps program, or both.
The CERT program is a training program that allows citizens to receive training in basic disaster response skills which allow these volunteers to provide critical support, giving immediate assistance to victims before emergency first responders arrive on scene.
The Citizen Corps program was created to coordinate volunteer activities that will make local communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to any emergency situation. Citizen Corps Councils focus on emergency planning and education that will enhance community post-disaster resiliency.
