Allow for State and local juridictions to use UASI and SHSGP funds to hire emergency managers. Currently, only Intelligence Analysts can be hired and paid through UASI and
SHSGP funds. Emergency Managers can only be hired through EMPG, but that is a much smaller grant that not all jurisdictions receive. In an All-Hazards context, emergency managers are far more important than intelligence analysts, so it would be a great benefit to local EM agencies if they could use UASI and SHSGP funds to hire additional personnel.
