What it is

The KPMG Smart Grants Platform is an innovative, modular grants management platform built for managing the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance (PA) program grants process.


What it enables

The KPMG Smart Grants Platform leverages AI, automation, and a risk-based approach to help streamline FEMA PA grants management, reduce risk, and accelerate reimbursement.


Who it’s for

State and local government emergency management agencies and other FEMA PA recipients, as well as applicants and subrecipients.

Navigating complexity in the face of disasters

The FEMA PA programs provides critical federal funding to help communities respond to and recover from major disasters and emergencies. To apply for the funding, state and local governments, and as well as certain private nonprofits must address complex and ever-evolving regulations and pour through large volumes of data, while embarking on an arduous recovery process. This often leads to delays in applicant project submissions and ultimately, results in a prolonged reimbursement process that can take years, including the possibility of missed funding opportunities.
