UBCM: Emergency Preparedness Funding Deadlines
Two Community Emergency Preparedness Fund streams have pending 2020 deadlines. Emergency Support Services (ESS) applications must be in by Friday, February 14th, and the Emergency Operations Centres (EOC) deadline is Friday, March 13th.
The intent of the Emergency Support Services stream is to build local capacity to provide ESS through training, volunteer recruitment and retention, and the purchase of equipment. This intake is emphasizing EMBC’s modernization of ESS by digitizing ESS delivery to streamline processes and to enable evacuees to access services more easily and efficiently. The 2020 intake deadline is Friday, February 14th.
The intent of the Emergency Operations Centres Equipment and Training stream is to support the purchase of equipment and supplies required to maintain or improve EOCs, and to enhance EOC capacity through training and exercises. The 2020 intake deadline is Friday, March 13th.
The maximum available funding for both streams is $25,000. Eligible applicants are BC local governments (municipalities, regional districts) and all BC First Nations (bands and Treaty First Nations). Regional applications are permitted in both funding streams.
