Good morning. Please find a link here to 82 FR 37106-Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) request for comments on Non-Disaster (ND) Grants System grant applications.  As you may be aware, ND Grants is a web-based grants management system that fulfills FEMA’s strategic initiative to consolidate the entire non-disaster grants management lifecycle into a single system.

Should you wish to provide comments, please submit those to Rita or myself, and certainly don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions.  DEADLINE TO SUBMIT COMMENTS TO DHS/FEMA IS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2017.  In order to provide to for review, please kindly provide comments to myself or Rita by THURSDAY, AUGUST 31, 2017.
