Consideration for approval and authorization for the Chair to sign the 2021 Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) Encumbrance #21EM-22-46 Letter of Acceptance Between the State of Colorado, Department of Public Safety, Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and Routt County.
The Colorado Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Management (DHSEM) will issue this grant award as a Small Dollar Grant Agreement (SDGA). The issuance of a SDGA functions like a ‘purchase order’ for requests for reimbursements (RFRs) in the State financial system, and does not require original signatures on a formal agreement from your approving authorities, as done in the past, in order to reduce unnecessary delays in processing formalized agreement documents and our awarded projects. The period of performance for the 2021 EMPG SDGA is from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021.
On January 11, 2021, the BCC approved and signed the Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) – Local Emergency Manager Support (LEMS) Program Funding Grant Application for Calendar Year 2021. Routt County has benefited from the EMPG Grant for many years with reimbursement to the County based on meeting performance requirements identified in the yearly Grant Agreement. Routt County received $71,000 in 2012, $83,580 in 2013, $76,000 in 2014 and 2015, $61,150 in 2016, and $60,000 in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020.
Grant Letter of Acceptance approved as to form by Erick Knaus, Routt County Attorney.
