Econometrica is working to design and implement an evaluation to measure the impact of the Homeland Security Grant Program, with specific focus on National Preparedness Assessment Division (NPAD) grants. Through this work, our program evaluation experts are assisting Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in expanding their understanding of the extent to which disaster preparedness grant funding makes an impact on readiness and capabilities at the local level. By developing econometric and statistical models, we aim to assist FEMA in building an evidence base for the effectiveness of their grant programs with quantitative estimates of the impacts of their funding.
