The Nevada State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) under the Nevada Department of Public Safety has grant funding to help Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) for planning and training as well as equipment purchases, including shipping costs, for combating terrorism.
Nevada LEPCs may request advance funding for expenses more than $2,000, and allocation requests max out at $25,000. There is no matching requirement.
An additional $4,000 operations grant will be awarded if the LEPC is administratively compliant.
Reimbursements through this grant program will begin on July 14, 2017.
SERC Application Requirements
Include the operations amount in the total amount of the grant request.
If requesting up to 50 percent of operations funds for clerical assistance, include a detailed justification for the use of funds. A copy of the LEPC meeting minutes approving said request and supporting the grant application must be submitted prior to preparation of a grant award.
Applications for combating terrorism locally are due by March 10, 2017.
