IEMA Awards $4 Million in Grants to Support Local Emergency Management Agencies

July 19, 2016

Grants will help 120 cities, counties prepare for emergencies

SPRINGFIELD – Grants totaling $4 million awarded by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) will help 120 accredited city and county emergency management agencies throughout Illinois support local disaster preparedness and response efforts.

Every emergency begins and ends at the local level, and local emergency management agencies are key components of that response and recovery, said IEMA Director James K. Joseph. These grants will allow them to continue efforts to ensure the safety of the residents in the communities and counties they serve.

The Emergency Management Performance Grants (EMPG) are funded through a grant IEMA receives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).   The grants, which are awarded annually, can be used for day-to-day ope​rations of local emergency preparedness and response programs. Award amounts were determined by a base amount plus population-based formula prescribed by administrative rule.

County and municipal emergency management agencies receiving the grants include:
