    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 managing Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) applications through all phases of the grants cycle from initial receipt, award, obligations, post-award monitoring, and processing amendment requests. Typical assignments include:

    • Gathering analyzing, interpreting, and preparing documentation for management's decision and approval on critical HMGP matters.
    • Conducting research, surveys, and analysis of the mitigation program execution.
    • Monitoring and reviewing mitigation program changes for progress and capability of implementation.
    • Developing and implementing mitigation standards, practices, and procedures.
    • Providing technical assistance on all matters relating to mitigation and HMA policy guidance is provided as needed.
    • Working with state, tribal, and local governments through the request for information (RFI) process to ensure application completeness and eligibility.
