The National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA) provides grants management technical assistance and services for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), under a subcontract with Innovative Emergency Management, LLC (IEM).
As part of this initiative, NCJA assists in developing and delivering guidance and training for state, regional, local, tribal, transportation and port jurisdictions/agencies on basic and advanced grants management principles and practices in order to improve the ability of FEMA grant recipients to administer federal grant funding.
The Grants Management Technical Assistance (GMTA) Program assists FEMA’s State, regional, local, and Tribal jurisdiction stakeholders understand and apply basic and advanced grants management business principles and processes to improve their overall administration. The GMTA is adapted to fit the specific needs of the jurisdictions, and, most importantly, be sustained by FEMA partners in homeland security and emergency management in support of state and local initiatives.
Technical Assistance services are available at no cost to the grant recipient or subrecipient.
