The Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency recently implemented a new grants Management system, Georgia EMGrantsPro. This new system provides a more up to date, web-based method for grants management for both GEMA/HS grants administration staff as well as for the subgrantees. The system enables subgrantees to do the following tasks in the system electronically: apply for grants, make requests such as reimbursement requests, budget adjustments, time extensions, scope changes, etc., monitor grant activities (providing visibility on the status of request), and file quarterly reports.

Local Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) Applicants need to register as first-time users in the system prior to the application period opening. After registering in the Georgia EMGrantsPro System, they can expect to receive a username and password within 5-7 business days. In addition, a Memorandum of Understanding will be forwarded to each local entity for completion as part of the registration process.

The link below will provide access to the Getting Started Guide for the Georgia EMGrantsPro System. The information will provide step-by-step instructions on how to get registered. However, if applicants experience issues getting registered, they can send an email to hsgrants@gema.ga.gov or call the Preparedness Grants & Programs Division for assistance at (404) 635-7095.

NOTE: Applications will only be accepted on-line via the new Georgia EMGrantsPro System at ga.emgrants.com.
