Administered by:

US Federal Government Agency (see all agencies)
Department Of Homeland Security
CFDA #: 97.052

Purpose of this program:

The purpose of the Emergency Operations Centers program is to supplement and assist State and local efforts to improve their capabilities to respond to emergencies or disasters including any that may be caused by terrorist attacks using conventional means or Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). The program provides grants to the States to encourage the development of Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs) that provide flexibility, sustainability, security, survivability and interoperability. 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.
