Additional Information on Eligibility
The Governor of each State and Territory is required to designate a State Administrative Agency (SAA) to apply for and administer the funds awarded under RCPGP. The SAA is the only entity eligible formally to apply for RCPGP funds. DHS requires that the SAA be responsible for obligating RCPGP funds to local units of government and other designated recipients within 45 days after receipt of funds. Eligible applicants are the State Administrative Agencies of the Tier 1 Urban Areas and designated Tier II Urban Areas. In addition, to be eligible to receive FY 2008 and FY 2007 RCPGP funding, applicants must meet NIMS compliance requirements. State, Territory, Tribal, and local governments are considered to be in full NIMS compliance if they have adopted and/or implemented the FY 2007 compliance activities, as determined by the National Incident Management System Capability Assessment Support Tool (NIMSCAST) or other accepted means. Jurisdictions unable to report NIMS compliance by the end of FY 2007 can request up to 120 days additional time for the specific activity using the Corrective Action Plan (CAP) available as part of NIMSCAST. Additional information on achieving compliance is available through the FEMA National Integration Center (NIC) at http://www.fema.gov/emergency/nims/. For FY 2008, the NIMSCAST will be the required means to report NIMS compliance for FY 2009 preparedness award eligibility. All State and Territory direct preparedness awardees will be required to submit their compliance assessment via the NIMSCAST by September 30, 2008. The State or Territory department/agency awardee reserves the right to determine compliance reporting requirements of their sub-awardees (locals) in order to disperse funds at the local level.
