Streamlining the Distribution of Emergency Grants Amid a Global Health Crisis

U.S. Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency

The Challenge

Following the passage of the 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, FEMA had just weeks to allocate $100 million in critical emergency aid to thousands of qualified grant applicants during the height of the global health pandemic.

The Partnership

Partner Forces teamed up with FEMA to provide critical grant operations, change management, and emergency management support.

Our team worked closely with internal and external stakeholders to document existing processes, design best practices for distributing vital personal protective equipment (PPE) funding for fire departments nationwide, and develop new online tools and resources to administer grants during a crisis.

The Impact

  • Distribute $100 million in CARES Act funding for vital PPE to firefighters, helping to minimize the spread of COVID-19 nationwide
  • Reduce strain on the federal emergency response workforce
