Who we are?
The Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program (RCPGP) is a Department of Homeland Security initiative established in 2008 to encourage collaborative emergency planning in America’s largest region. The RCPGP has three primary goals:
● Fix shortcomings in existing plans.
● Build regional planning communities.
● Link operational and capabilities-based resource planning.
The regional project site for the New York City and Northern New Jersey also includes Long Island, several New York counties, and parts of Connecticut and Pennsylvania. WIth a population of 22,000,000 people, this region is home to nearly 1 in every 14 Americans. The RCPT has partnered with Public Health Solutions to administer the grant.
The Regional Logistics Program is an initiative within the RCPGP designed to link resources, expertise and information among participating jurisdictions in NY, NJ, CT and PA. By creating a shared standard and strengthening regional partnerships, the Region optimizes its ability to manage resources and respond to a catastrophic event. The Program focuses on four core components: planning, information-sharing, resource management and the establishment of highly-trained emergency response logistics teams.
