Grants, Public Assistance and Individual Assistance

Seattle OEM oversees various grants and FEMA related projects. Below you find information on the Regional Catastrophic Planning Grant, FEMA Grants, Public Assistance and Indvidial Assistance information.


The Regional Catastrophic Planning Grant Project (RCPGP) for Resilience Hubs focuses on what Puget Sound communities can do to be safe and resilient to the impacts of a variety of hazards.

Community Resilience Hubs serve four primary purposes:

1. Community organization and independence;
2. Resource and information sharing;
3. Family reunification; and
4. Safety and shelter when local emergency responders are the busiest.

This project will work with communities to focus on current community efforts and available resources to find resources gaps. Learning from regularly recurring hazards like extreme weather, or a potential catastrophic earthquake, we design safe and familiar community-operated spaces that people will use every day and are more likely to return to after an extreme event.

If your community would like to learn more about a Resilience Hub in your area, please contact
