National Weather Service Financial Support For NTHMP Grants


For State, Territory, Local Government and Tribal Tsunami Activities


Since Federal fiscal year 2008, Congress has authorized NOAA's National Weather Service to offer a grants program to support tsunami preparedness, mitigation, mapping, modeling, and warning coordination activities. Per terms of authorizing legislation, these grants have been made available only to agencies and organizations that have membership on the NTHMP Coordinating Committee as defined in the NTHMP Rules of Procedure. The legislation was updated in 2017 and financial support is available also to local governments and Indian tribes.
