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.
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.
The modular KPMG Smart Grants Platform for FEMA PA is built with industry-leading grant management practices and disaster recovery experience in mind to support the comprehensive FEMA PA grants management process.
In addition to the right tools, we bring the right talent, experience, and outcomes-focused approach to your recovery effort. We enrich your disaster recovery efforts with practitioners that have supported some of the largest global disasters in the last 40 years, including 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Ian, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
A risk-based approach, built-in overnance, and a full audit trail to help you protect federal funds from the risks of fraud, waste, and abuse, reduce the risk of de-obligation, and be audit-ready.
Time intensive manual data collection and analysis is reduced from months to days by expediting state review of FEMA PA project documentation, allowing for faster reimbursement.
