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.

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.
