D&B provided grant writing and administration services to the Incorporated Village of Williston Park and the Village of Mineola for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. The process involved substantial coordination efforts between our clients, the Nassau County Office of Emergency Management (NC OEM), the New York State Office of Emergency Management (NYS OEM) and FEMA.
D&B worked to collect necessary data for the application from municipal clients and outside sources and agencies. As part of this effort, D&B utilized expertise from several divisions within the company. For instance, the Electrical Division provided necessary generator information for each
generator specific application. The GIS team assisted with the creation of necessary maps and datasets. The Civil Engineering division provided viable project alternatives. The Planning Group was responsible for the development of benefit/cost analysis documentation as well as the overall coordination of all associated parties; responses for all written sections; advancement of the finalized applications to the State; responses to all Requests for Information (RFIs) and submission of required paperwork for individual projects for inclusion into Nassau County Hazard Mitigation Plan.
Detailed scopes, budgets and storm histories were prepared as part of each HMGP application. Any needed engineering feasibility documentation for projects was also prepared as supporting application materials. Each submitted application
was subject to several rounds of review and comment by the State and FEMA; D&B prepared all required additional documentation in partnership with our clients. D&B remains involved with the progression of this ongoing grant program and has worked with Nassau County to support each municipal client’s incorporation into the County’s planning efforts.
