FEMA State Preparedness Report Fact Sheet Overview The State Preparedness Report showcases the capabilities and accomplishments of each State’s and Territory’s all-hazards preparedness program and provides a method for States to communicate their plan to increase preparedness to Congress. The State Preparedness Report is both a measure of past capabilities and accomplishments, combined with an estimate of future capabilities. The State Preparedness Report tracks Statewide planning and incident management efforts, current preparedness capability levels, targeted levels of capability, aggregate preparedness expenditures, and estimates of the total monetary and non-monetary resources needed to support all preparedness-related activities for a three year period. Streamlining Requirements FEMA consolidated four previous submissions which resulted in a single document, the State Preparedness Report. FEMA worked closely with stakeholders to begin tying State together activities generally administered independently into State Preparedness Preparedness Enhancement Enhancement a common process and product. In year one, the State Report Report Plan Plan Preparedness Report serves as the development of a Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) Program Nationwide Nationwide HSGP Program HSGP Program Plans Review Plans Review Evaluation Evaluation Evaluation Report, an update to the HSGP Enhancement (Phase 1) (Phase 1) Report Report Plan, and an update to the Nationwide Plans Review (NPR) Phase 1. These three reports have been eliminated as separate requirements and will now become one streamlined report, the State Preparedness Report. Stakeholder Involvement FEMA has received feedback through conference calls and formal meetings from over 130 participants representing 42 States. This feedback helped to further define the framework, development, and use of the State Preparedness Report. Stakeholder recommendations include using the National Priorities as an organizing framework, emphasizing the all-hazards nature of the report, reporting on State-specific priorities, allowing States to select which current capabilities method is used, and consolidating overlapping requirements.
