Preparedness Grant Management

The federal government provides state and local governments with preparedness program funding through Preparedness (non-disaster) Grants. This is to enhance the capacity of state, local, tribal, and territorial emergency responders to prevent, respond to, recover, and mitigate from natural and man-made disasters. We have the experience and insight to identify and enable those programs to strengthen your disaster preparedness plan.

Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP)

Tidal Basin has the unmatched expertise and guidance to engage in and manage nationally coordinated Homeland Security Grant Programs (HSGP). We provide this for state, local, tribal, and territorial agencies, as well as for our not-for-profit and private sector partners. Our clients include emergency management agencies, as well as public and private transit, transportation, maritime, energy, and utility infrastructure owners and operators.

Preparedness grants support the creation, delivery, and sustainment of a coordinated national security strategy for the protection of our nation’s critical infrastructure and key resources. Eligible recipients are awarded funds to establish and maintain core capabilities in disaster prevention, asset protection, impact mitigation, and event response and recovery capacities as coordinated through the National Preparedness System.

This grant provides funding to eligible publicly-owned operators of public transportation — including intra-city bus, commuter bus, ferries, and all forms of passenger rail — to protect critical surface transportation infrastructure and the traveling public from various disasters, and to increase the resilience of transit infrastructure.

This grant program is intended to supplement states, counties, cities or other federal agencies when appropriate, with unusually high expenses resulting from natural disasters or catastrophic failures. FHWA, or federal-aid roads, are all public roads, not functionally classified as either local or rural minor collectors by state highway agencies.

Months after the storm passed, the County was still faced with tremendous burdens related to the insurance coverage issues and FEMA and MEMA eligibility issues. Jackson County hired your organization to provide professional services for disaster assistance, remediation, restoration and recovery efforts....Their expertise with governmental regulations, the complex FEMA process and insurance adjustments resulted in our successful claim for over $2 million in additional FEMA Public Assistance funding specifically; in our successful negotiations with our insurance carrier; and in numerous other increases in the values FEMA and MEMA initially designated for County projects. Jackson County will always be mindful of the help we received from you when we needed it most.

Severe storms dumped massive amounts of rain in the Southern Tier of New York State in the summer of 2006, resulting in widespread flooding. 

When Hurricane Katrina struck, bringing with it widespread flooding and damage, the City of Slidell took the brunt of the storm. Located just 30 miles north of New Orleans, the two cities were both hit full-force by the destructive power of the hurricane. Unfortunately for Slidell, the nation first focused on the recovery of New Orleans. The City of Slidell didn't begin its recovery operations under Adjusters International had been hired, bringing the expertise required to turn the recovery process around.
