NWTEMC Structure
  • The State of Washington houses nine Homeland
    Security Regions for the purpose of distributing
    HLS funding. The NWTEMC has proposed a tenth
    Region specifically for the Tribes. Region X HLS
    would become the conduit by which the Tribes in
    Washington State could facilitate the
    distribution of HLS monies.

20
Why create a Region X
  • Current system must be improved to include the
    Tribes in Washington
  • Tribes have many of the same emergency
    management/HLS/Public Health responsibilities as
    the States
  • Much of Washington States Critical
    Infrastructure is located on or near Tribal lands
  • A Region X would enhance Washington States
    ability to protect the homeland by strengthening
    partnerships

21
Funding Proposal
  • The NWTEMC has put forth a request to Congress
    asking for a 3 million earmark in 2008 and a
    4 million earmark in 2009. These funds would
    be used to establish the groundwork for emergency
    management programs throughout all of the member
    Tribes of the NWTEMC.
