Description

Background

The conference is designed to provide a platform for grantees and federal agencies to share updates and information on grant policies to
gain a better understanding of available resources in an era of diminishing federal dollars. The conference will provide a forum for discussions with our stakeholders from the States, Territories, Local, and Tribal governments, private sector, nonprofit and faith based
organizations. The conference will include plenary sessions, workshops and breakout sessions focusing on grant policy, technical assistance, leveraging grant dollars, information on regionalization, and ways to encourage private sector partnerships, with emphasis on:

• Presidential Policy Directive 8 (PPD-8)
• National Preparedness System (NPS)
• Vision of FY 2013 National Preparedness Grant Program (NPGP)
• SAA focused breakouts
• FY11 after action for TSGP and PSGP
• State and Urban Area Risk Methodologies
• State and Regional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA)
• State Preparedness Report (update)
• Whole Community and Inclusive Emergency Management
