Grants to Montana local, tribal, territorial, and state governments to assist them in preparing for hazards of all types. Funding is intended to develop an emergency preparedness system that protects lives and property. Recipients must address identified gaps and capability targets.

The purpose of the Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) Program is to provide federal funds to states to assist state, local, territorial, and tribal governments in preparing for all hazards. Title VI of the Stafford Act authorizes DHS/FEMA to make grants for the purpose of providing a system of emergency preparedness for the protection of life and property in the United States from hazards and to vest responsibility for emergency preparedness jointly in the Federal Government, states, and their political subdivisions. The FY 2019 EMPG will provide Federal funds to assist state, local, tribal, and territorial emergency management agencies to obtain the resources required to support the National Preparedness Goal’s (the Goal’s) associated mission areas and core capabilities.


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and MT DES require EMPG sub-recipients to prioritize grant funding to address capability targets and gaps identified through participation in the annual Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) and Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR) process. Sub-recipients should prioritize the use of grant funds to maintain/sustain current capabilities to validate capability levels, and to increase capability for high-priority core capabilities with low capability levels.
