The Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) Program plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System by supporting the building, sustainment and delivery of core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness Goal of a secure and resilient nation. The EMPG program is essential for the building and sustainment of critical capabilities for disaster preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation across the country.
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. The EMPG Program supports a comprehensive, all-hazard emergency preparedness system by building and sustaining the core capabilities contained in the Goal.
In Texas, the Texas Division of Emergency Management is responsible for coordinating state and federal resources to assist local government in response and relief activities in the event of an emergency or disaster.
