The Ohio Emergency Management Agency is committed to contributing toward a Safer Ohio by bolstering preparedness and response capabilities. In order to provide counties with effective and efficient technical assistance in adhering to grant requirements, the EMA'S Grants Branch has developed trainings to provide insight into many of the most pressing technical requirements of grant compliance, convey requirements for release of funds, and set forth best practices. By providing this information, the Grants Branch hopes to help sub-recipients safeguard local funds from repayment and to ensure federal grant funds are utilized in the most effective ways to equip and train responders and to prepare Ohio for any emergent or disaster event.
The Grants Branch team is comprised of specialists and administrators who regularly review guidance materials, compliance documentation, progress toward reporting requirements, best practices, contracts, procurement documentation and are apprised of common audit findings. While relaying certain expertise, neither this site, nor the materials found on this site, should be considered legal advice. Further, this information should supplement and not supplant any rules and regulations from 2 CFR 200, State or Local Guidance documents, as well as any applicable local, state and federal standards. Forms and advice given here are intended only to provide guidance. These forms are not comprehensive, and the county/sub-recipient is solely responsible for ensuring that forms are properly completed and that the county/ sub-recipient is in compliance with all state and federal requirements. To this point, each sub-recipient should consult with its own legal counsel to ensure grant compliance.
