Commissioners Court - Regular
Citizens Corps Program Grant Application
Maria Medrano, Grants Department
Ratify the submission of a grant application to the Texas Department of Public Safety for the Citizens Corps Program grant.
The Department of Homeland Security under the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) offers several grant opportunities under the umbrella of the Homeland Security Grant Program. One such opportunity is the Citizens Corps Program (CCP). The Citizen Corps mission is to bring community and government leaders together to coordinate community involvement in emergency preparedness, planning, mitigation, response and recovery.
On November 17, 2010, the Commissioners Court approved the execution of a Sub-recipient Agreement and Terms and Conditions to acknowledge acceptance of a grant award for the Citizens Corps Program in the amount of $6,797.98.
On May 22, 2012, the County received an e-mail from the Coastal Bend Council of Governments, which stated the following: “The Texas Homeland Security State Administrative Agency (THSSAA) is seeking additional projects from current CCP grant recipients for funding consideration for leftover 2009 Citizen Corps Program (CCP) funds. The purpose of the programs is to bring community and government leaders together to coordinate community involvement in emergency preparedness, planning, mitigation, response and recovery.”
Project submissions were due by May 25, 2012 at noon so there was not sufficient time to present the grant application to Commissioners Court before the deadline. The project submitted requests $7,500 in equipment that would be used to support functional and access needs individuals during emergencies i.e. wheelchairs, walkers, portable ramps, etc.
Performance periods will be up to 45 day from award. Notifications of award decisions are anticipated within the first week of June 2012. Projects are limited to $7,500 each. No cash match will be required, if awarded.
