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 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.

I've been dealing with Tidal Basin for over two years in my positions as the Emergency Manager for Miami Beach. During that time, Tidal Basin has never disappointed me and has always exceeded my expectations. They are always available for consult, very easy to communicate with and are responsive to our requests. They are in tune with the City's fiscal responsibilities and therefore have stayed within the original budget. Just yesterday, we had an ad-hoc meeting with the CEO, Daniel Craig and his staff regarding COVID-19 reimbursement. They team not only reinforced our thoughts but because they stayed up to date on all Federal funding programs, they added pertinent information that we were not aware of.

As the project manager of a large scale, regional table top exercise, my experience with Tidal Basin was excellent. The project had several unpredicted challenges. These challenges were addressed by Tidal Basin personnel without disrupting my tight time line. Their experience and professionalism made my job much easier. I would highly recommend Tidal Basin to any future project.

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.
