Emergency Operations Center Grant (EOC)
The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Grant Program is intended to improve emergency management and preparedness capabilities by supporting flexible, sustainable, secure, and interoperable EOCs with a focus on addressing identified deficiencies and needs. This program provides funding for construction or renovation of a state, local or tribal governments’ principal EOC. Fully-capable emergency operations facilities at the state and local levels are an essential element of a comprehensive national emergency management system and are necessary to ensure continuity of operations and continuity of government in major disasters caused by any hazard.
In FY2010, the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Grant Program provides $57,600,000 for construction or renovation of a state, local, or tribal government’s principal EOC. Of this amount, $47,442,500 in non-competitive funding has been appropriated for designated EOC projects throughout the nation. The remaining $10,157,500 is allocated competitively to eligible state, local or tribal government’s principal EOCs.
The funding for the EOC grant equals 75 percent federal funds and 25 percent state/local match.
