Grant Overview & Purpose

Natural disasters have become more frequent in Indian Country over the past several years. Tribal nations and their citizens have endured tremendous loss of life, livelihood, and property. Unlike states, tribal nations have no consistent grant program providing every nation with much needed emergency management capacity building funds. Additionally, the federal government has restricted the avenues for tribal nations to accessdisaster preparedness and mitigation resources. Even when tribal nations can access disaster preparednessfunds often they are not flexible enough to meet all of the tribal nation’s needs.

The NCAI Disaster Preparedness Grants are shaped to flexibly cover the needs of tribal nations and/or tribal citizens (who live near their nations) as they prepare for future natural disasters such as, tornadoes, wildfires, hurricanes, earthquakes, severe storms, severe winds, blizzards, etc. While grant funds cannot be used to cover the wages of tribal employees or administrative costs, they can used to prepare for future natural disasters. A tribal nation’s preparedness measures can range from purchasing supplies, equipment, and resources to hiring a consultant to craft the nation’s emergency operations plan (EOP). An EOP is often a prerequisite for tribal nations to even access FEMA funds. NCAI has a total of $185,000 available for the grants. Individual grant awards will be capped at $20,000. This grant program will conclude once the $185,000 has been fully obligated or no later than February 28, 2021.
