NOAA/NWS Grants for Tsunami Activities
This page updated October 12, 2017
Since passage of the Tsunami Warning, Education, and Research Act in 2017 (P.L. 115-25, Title V) and its predecessor legislation in 2007 (TWEA, P.L. 109-479 Title VIII), Congress has authorized and directed NOAA's National Weather Service to award grants to states, territories, (and new eligibility in 2017--local governments and Tribes) under the auspices of the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program. The grants support tsunami preparedness, mitigation, mapping, and warning activities.
Per terms of authorizing legislation effective in 2017, states and territories that have membership on the NTHMP Coordinating Committee as defined in the NTHMP Rules of Procedure are eligible to apply. Local Governments must go through their respective states. Tribes may contact the NWS directly to inquire about application requirements.
