Description: The National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) seeks to mitigate earthquake losses in the United States through basic and directed research and implementation activities in the fields of earthquake science and engineering. The NEHRP program supports the mission area of the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review titled "Strengthen National Preparedness and Resilience," as well as the national preparedness goal of mitigation, as provided in the Presidential Policy Directive (PPD-8). NEHRP also supports the FEMA 2018-2022 Strategic Plan, by contributing to the accomplishment of Strategic Goal 1: Build a Culture of Preparedness and Strategic Goal 2: Ready the Nation for Catastrophic Disasters.The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity is to provide grant funding to non-profit organizations who possess the expertise and experience necessary to develop and deliver multi-State and National earthquake mitigation and preparedness products and services on behalf of States participating FEMA NEHRP State Assistance program (See Appendix H.). This NOFO funds Multi-State and National activities and is not intended to provide assistance for one specific State or Territory. Those activities are funded through the FEMA NEHRP Individual State Earthquake Assistance grant program and require individual States to provide a 25% Cost Share. All activities funded by the FEMA NEHRP, Multi-State and National Earthquake Assistance grant program must be consistent with NEHRP Vision, Mission, Goals and FEMA Program Responsibilities (See Appendix C.), and ultimately result in a measurable enhancement of National seismic safety and earthquake risk awareness.
