ABSTRACT

Preparedness Grants Effectiveness Case Study: Jersey City-Newark, New Jersey   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Overview: "In September 2020, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) conducted a preparedness grants effectiveness virtual case study with members of the Jersey City-Newark, New Jersey Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI; Jersey City-Newark). The purpose of the study was to understand the role of FEMA preparedness grants on the region's COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic response. FEMA also drew from information that community officials provided for the Biannual Strategy Implementation Report and the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment /Stakeholder Preparedness Review. This case study found that Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP)-funded projects have improved Jersey City-Newark's capability to protect emergency responders, have allowed effective information-sharing with the public and other stakeholders through investment in a regional fusion center, and have provided exercises and training that have improved Jersey City-Newark's public health response."
