The HMEP grant program is part of DOTs comprehensive approach to improving the safe transportation of crude oil and other hazardous material across the country.
Historically, PHMSAs HMEP grant program required recipients to use grant funds within the fiscal year it was received.
HMEP grants are funded by annual user registration fees paid by shippers and carriers of certain hazardous materials in commerce.
During grant period 2013-14, HMEP
grants funded more than 91,000 first responders in initial or refresher hazardous materials response training, over 1,300 new or revised hazardous materials emergency response plans, and over 950 hazardous materials exercises.
Joseph noted that IEMA received funding requests for more than $740,000 in local planning projects, but the state s federal HMEP
allocation was just over $435,000.
This contract procurement becomes first in the country using the new national highways maintenance efficiency programme (HMEP
) contract, specifically intended for local council roads, rather than larger roads like motorways.
Since 1993, more than 2.8 million emergency responders across the country have received training assistance using Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness (HMEP) grants.
From 2011-12, HMEP grants funded training for more than 98,400 first responders in initial or refresher hazmat response courses, over 1,300 new or revised hazmat emergency response plans, and approximately 1,060 hazmat exercises.
