The Idaho Office of Emergency Management (IOEM) Grants Branch conducts grant management activities and coordinates resources before, during, and after a disaster. As the State Administrative Agency (SAA) for many preparedness, mitigation and disaster federal grant programs, IOEM Grants allocates the majority of federal funding it receives to local jurisdictions, first responders, and tribes to sustain and supplement local emergency management and homeland security programs. The IOEM Logistics Section is responsible for coordinating the purchase of Homeland Security Grant equipment, the Homeland Defense Equipment Reuse (HDER) program and disaster logistics needs.
FEMA is the designated federal agency for overseeing preparedness and disaster grants.
