Data collection for the annual NIMS compliance requirement from FEMA/DHS. All jurisdictions/entities receiving grant funds must comply with NIMS, and these survey questions ensure that all aspects of compliance are covered.
Each year, FEMA requires that our region document whether all entities requesting and receiving homeland security grant funds are compliant with NIMS and its principles. To meet this requirement, all jurisdictions must submit answers to a series of questions. An answer of “no” to any question disqualifies you from receiving grant funds, but FEMA also allows for documentation that you are in the process of meeting a requirement or meet it via an alternate method in order to remain eligible to receive funding.
