FEMA implements the CCP as a supplemental assistance program available to states, U.S. territories, and federally recognized tribes after a Presidential disaster declaration that includes Individual Assistance. After the award of this grant, the state, territory, or tribe works with contracted provider agencies to hire and train crisis counselors to conduct outreach in the affected areas.

Through an interagency agreement, SAMHSA works with FEMA to provide technical assistance, consultation, and training for state, territory, tribal, and local mental health personnel. SAMHSA also administers and oversees CCP grants. You can learn more about the CCP at the SAMHSA Disaster Technical Assistance Centers website.
