FY 2013 Emergency Management Performance Grants (EMPG) Program provides resources to assist state, local, tribal and territorial governments in preparing for all hazards, as authorized by the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act.
All 56 States and territories, as well as the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Federated States of Micronesia, were eligible to apply for FY 2013 EMPG Program funds. Either the SAA or the State’s EMA were eligible to apply directly to FEMA for EMPG Program funds on behalf of State and local emergency management agencies, however only one application was accepted from each State or territory.
Program Awards: The FY 2013 EMPG Program funds were allocated in compliance with Section 662 of the Post-Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2006 (6 U.S.C. 762). All 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico received a base amount of 0.75 percent of the total available grant funding. Four territories (American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) received a base amount of 0.25 percent of the total available grant funding. The balance of EMPG Program funds was distributed on a population-share basis. Pursuant to Title II of the Compact of Free Association Amendments Act of 2003 (Public Law 108-188), funds were also available for the Federated States of Micronesia and for the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
113th Congress (2013-2014)
House Report 113-091
Appropriation, fiscal year 2013* $349,650,000 Budget request, fiscal year 2014 1 - - - Recommended in the bill 350,000,000 Bill compared with: Appropriation, fiscal year 2013 +350,000 Budget request, fiscal year 2014 +350,000,000
Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) funds are used to support comprehensive emergency management at the State and local levels and to encourage the improvement of mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery capabilities for all hazards.
The Committee recommends $350,000,000 for EMPG, $350,000,000 above the amount requested and $350,000 above the amount provided in fiscal year 2013. The request did not include a separate appropriation for EMPG but instead proposed $350,000,000 for this activity within State and Local Programs. Consistent with past years, the Committee again does not agree to transfer EMPG to State and Local Programs, continuing instead to fund the EMPG program as a separate appropriation.
The Committee directs FEMA to continue EMPG grant practices used in fiscal year 2007, including a continued emphasis on all-hazards activities and the inclusion of personnel expenses and Emergency Operations Centers as eligible uses of funding.

The Committee provides for the receipt and expenditure of Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program (REPP) fees, which are collected as authorized by Public Law Public Law 105–276. The request estimates that fee collections will exceed expenditures by $1,272,000 in fiscal year 2014.
