Required Training for Hazard Mitigation Grant Program Applicants

The FEMA Disaster Procurement Assistance Team (DPAT) will be conducting training the afternoon of May 27th and the morning of May 28th. Training on the morning of the 27th will focus heavily on the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program; training on the 28th will focus heavily on the Public Assistance Program. Based on DHS OIG audit findings to date for Public Assistance Program in Colorado, procurement not following federal regulation is one of the key issues we have.

Attendance is mandatory for all Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) applicants conducting procurement as part of their project.

This training will cover essential Federal procurement guidelines to be applied to DRs 4067, 4133, 4134, and 4145 and future disaster events. If you or a member of your team has already attended previous iterations of this training, please send other representatives from your organization that will benefit. If you can’t make the session specific to your program, you may attend the other session.
