The Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program NY & NJ Area (RCPGP NY/NJ Area)
This is the website of the RCPGP NY/NJ Area. It is a regional catastrophic planning initiative for jurisdictions across NY, NJ, CT, and PA, funded by the US Department of Homeland Security. The program area (see map on Jurisdictions Page) serves a population of 22 million people and is home to nearly 1 in every 14 Americans. The program is steered by the Regional Catastrophic Planning Team, which directs the work of its operational arm, the Regional Integration Center, to improve regional security and resilience through a "fix, build, and resource" process. This process includes fixing shortcomings in existing plans, building regional planning processes and planning communities, and linking operational needs identified in plans to resource allocation.
