The State of Nevada, Division of Emergency Management is responsible for applying for federal funding through the Department of Homeland Security.
We are the State Administrative Agency (SAA) for the distribution of these funds. This provides funding for equipment, planning, training, exercise, and management and administrative funding to emergency prevention, preparedness and response personnel in Nevada.
These grants also provide funding to local governments for our critical infrastructure. This is defined as food and water systems, agriculture, health systems and emergency services, information and telecommunications, banking and finance, energy (electrical, gas and oil, dams), transportation (air, road, railways).
