    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.

    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 serve as an expert Grants Management Specialist, performing work that involves implementing and managing Federal grants and cooperative agreements and providing related technical assistance and services. Typical duties include:

    • Awarding and administering grants and cooperative agreements. 
    • Providing expertise, and consultation to program officials, awardees, review panels, and Senior Management.
    • Determining awardee eligibility using formulas, methodology and established eligibility criteria and tracking milestone completion.
    • Leading the effort to review and evaluate the impact of new statutory regulations.
