Conflict of Interest – If your State or local governmental agency is funded through THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT and you receive pay directly or indirectly from FEDERAL GOVERNMENT grant funding you may not contract for a fee, but must contract for expenses only unless you are on UNPAID leave OR LEAVE WITHOUT PAY STATUS. If you are a FEMA Disaster Assistance Employee you may not contract with FEMA to instruct.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the information being provided, please email them to FEMA-EMI-InstructorApplication@fema.dhs.gov. Thank you.
