"The FY 2006 EMPG [Emergency Management Performance Grants] Program Guidance and Application Kit is now available online at www.ojp.usdoj.gov/fundopps.htm. The FY 2006 EMPG Program Guidance and Application Kit is being released separately from the FY 2006 Homeland Security Grant Program Application Kit and Program Guidance. The EMPG Program is designed to assist States and Urban Areas in achieving the target levels of capability to sustain and enhance the effectiveness of their emergency management programs. With funds provided through the FY 2006 EMPG, States have the opportunity to develop intra- and interstate emergency management systems that encourage the building of partnerships to include government, business, volunteer, and community organizations based on identified needs and priorities for strengthening their emergency management and catastrophic planning capabilities. Additionally, States will simultaneously be able to address issues of national concern as identified both in the National Priorities and the Target Capabilities List. EMPG allowable costs have been divided into planning, organization, equipment, training, and exercises categories. In addition, management and administration costs are allowable."
