HMEP Expenditures Guide

The information contained in the HMEP Expenditures Guide is provided for guidance to administer the HMEP grant program and is effective for FY16 grant awards. Examples of allowable activities provided in this document are not all-inclusive, and the absence of a specific activity does not preclude its possible approval. Conversely, all proposed activities will be considered based on the proposed budget costs allocable to the approved project in accordance with 2 CFR 200, Subpart E, and Cost Principles. This guidance supersedes all previous versions.

HMEP Best Practices Guide

Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness (HMEP) grants are used to develop, improve, and implement emergency plans, and train public sector hazardous materials (hazmat) response employees. This best practices guide was compiled, in part, by users of HMEP grants at the state and local levels, as well as grant administrators at PHMSA. The intent of this guide is to list examples of best practice projects from several grant recipient states that are within allowable costs as outlined by PHMSA. It also was established as a supplement for states attempting to acquire planning or training monies.
