HAZMAT TEAMS LOCATED IN NEW YORK STATE
Fiscal Year 2009 Hazmat Grant Request For Proposals
Fiscal Year 2009 HazMat Grant Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit applications for federal State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) funding made available by the NYS Office of Homeland Security (OHS) for the State's Hazardous Materials (HazMat) response teams. The three primary objectives of this grant are to promote the development of regional partnerships among the State HazMat community; to build sustainable WMD/HazMat Response and Decontamination Capabilities; and to enhance the standing of the State's HazMat teams within FEMA's "typing system."
HazMat teams located in New York State are eligible to apply for the 2009 HazMat Grant Program. This is project is focused on regional programs and OHS will not accept applications from individual teams; rather, two or more teams must apply together for a regional project. OHS will not identify pre-set regions for this grant program; instead, applicants will have the ability to determine their regional construct for the purposes of this grant program.
Applicants (consisting of two or more HazMat Teams) must identify one primary team to be the "submitting partner" for this grant. The other partners involved in a given application will be deemed "non-submitting partners". The "submitting partner" will be the fiduciary agent for the regional application (if the region is a successful applicant under the 2009 HazMat Grant Program), responsible for completing all required grant reporting forms in coordination with and on behalf of their region. The "submitting partner" must be a publicly-funded HazMat team; however, the regional partnership can include "non-submitting partners" that are funded by private entities. "Non-submitting partners" will be responsible for coordinating with the "submitting partner" on the development of an application for the 2009 HazMat Grant Program and the implementation and evaluation of projects (if the regional partnership receives funding under this grant).
Applications will be accepted through 11:59 pm December 9, 2009 through the State's electronic grants management system (E-Grants). For an application and instructions, contact: Office of Homeland Security, Meghan Dudley, 1220 Washington Ave., State Office Campus, Bldg. 7A, Albany, NY 12242, 1-866-837-9133, e-mail: grants@security.state.ny.us
