Describe the main two models of bureaucracy and elements of each model

Question 1

No one entity or public servant can do a job alone. Teamwork, collaboration, and coordination are key elements in public service. The local government is dependent on state agencies and or neighboring jurisdictions as well as funding from the national level. Conversely, federal authorities often rely on local and state entities to manage or maintain programs at the grassroots level.

Discuss the central importance of coordination among public agencies (Chapter 4). What is it and why is it often important? What are some of the factors that might undermine or strengthen efforts to improve coordination? (As always, you can employ real-world examples to bring this concept to life.)

Question 2

Based on the reading, outline the types of grants that may be available to state and local government. Research two specific grant programs that would be available to an emergency management organization at the state or local level from another level of government. Explain the uses of the grants and the specifications for utilizing the funding. Please provide references in APA format.
