State of LouisianaGovernor's Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP)
Called the costliest disaster in US history, Hurricane Katrina pushed the GOHSEP staff far beyond what could be handled manually or with Excel spreadsheets. Almost immediately after the storm, GOHSEP turned to EMGrantsPro for managing the Public Assistance program and LouisianaPA.com was launched. An unprecedented amount of paperwork was instantly organized and the status of Applicants, projects, and payments could be obtained at the click of a button.
One distinct feature that is only in LouisianaPA.com is the "Express Pay" system. When fund requests are received from Applicants, the State has the option to instantly advance part or all of the requested funds as a "documented advance." This ensures that the much needed funds reach the Applicant immediately while the State can thoroughly examine the documentation after the fact (which may trigger an adjustment payment if the State disagrees with the eligible amount of the expenses provided).
After years of using LouisianaPA.com, GOHSEP turned to MB3 once again to implement LouisianaHM.com which handles the management of the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. With a similar look-and-feel to PA, Applicants and State officials could work in both systems right away without a difficult transition period. GOHSEPs operation has been streamlined around MB3s products to help achieve the quickest and most efficient recovery.
MB3 INC. delivers web-based software that primarily helps to accelerate the Emergency Management (EM) grant process.
