Applicant Agent Certification

The Kentucky Emergency Management Recovery Branch is proud to announce the implementation of the first Applicant Agent Certification Program in the United States.  This certification will enable your designated Applicant Agent to maximize federal disaster-related funding associated with the FEMA Public Assistance Program.  Certification will be awarded to those who successfully complete the Applicant Agent training.

Certified Applicant Agents will be better prepared to ensure your devastated county or city is included within a presidential disaster declaration.  This course will include a wealth of information regarding Public Assistance such as disaster project management and tips on how to avoid de-obligation of federal funding on projects.  Course topics will include information regarding Individual Assistance, Volunteer Coordination, 404 and 406 Hazard Mitigation, and other potential funding sources.
