The State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) awards grants to eligible recipients with funds received from three separate entities.
Grant funds come from:
* The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT)
* Tier II fees collected from facilities within the state which must comply with reporting requirements
mandated by the federal Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA),
sections 312 through 313
* Fees from the sale of United We Stand (UWS) license plates
Awards for grants will be provided on a reimbursement basis with the ability to request an advance for
expenses over $2,000.
Grantees and sub-grantees must comply with administrative requirements set forth in the Nevada
Administrative Code (NAC) and SERC policies. Failure to comply with these requirements will result in the
recipient being ineligible for funding from the SERC until the next grant cycle.
Please ensure the completed applications are submitted with all required documentation requested in the
application. Any application that is submitted incomplete will be given an opportunity to correct prior to being
reviewed by the Commission and if not corrected prior to the review, an approval may include contingencies.
