    Responsibilities

    When disaster strikes, America looks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Now FEMA looks to you. Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. FEMA prepares the nation for all hazards and manages Federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident. We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce. Please visit www.fema.gov for additional information.

    EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites. All positions are subject to recall around the clock for emergency management operations, which may require irregular work hours, work at locations other than the official duty station, and may include duties other than those specified in the employee's official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.

    In this position, you will be providing leadership for grant lifecycle. Typical assignments include:

    • Serving as a policy resource to FEMA Headquarters and regional office grant-management staff,

    providing information and guidance on the development and implementation of policies and

    directives;

    • Serving as an advisor and subject matter expert to the directorate leadership on a variety of

    grant-related policies and issues;

    • Representing GPD in programmatic discussions with other FEMA offices, DHS components,

    Executive Branch agencies, the White House, Congress, and external stakeholders;

    • Providing supervisory oversight to all Preparedness Grant Division personnel;

    • Planning, directing, coordinating and evaluating organizational programs in consultation with

    subordinate supervisors; and

    • Serving as an authoritative analyst in the assessment and improvement of grant programs
