Grants to Arizona governmental agencies and Tribal governments for disaster preparedness activities. Funding is intended for projects related to terrorism prevention, response, and recovery. Proposals may address planning, organization, equipment, training, and exercise needs.

The SHSGP assists state, tribal and local preparedness activities that address high-priority preparedness gaps across all core capabilities and mission areas where a nexus to terrorism exists. SHSGP supports the implementation of risk driven, capabilities-based approaches to address capability targets set in urban area, state, and regional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessments (THIRAs). The capability targets are established during the THIRA process, and assessed in the State Preparedness Report (SPR) and inform planning, organization, equipment, training, and exercise needs to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism and other catastrophic events.

These priority areas should stay the same for 2021:

  • Federal Priority #1 - Cybersecurity 
  • Federal Priority #2 - Enhancing the protection of soft targets and crowded places
  • Federal Priority #3 - Enhancing information and intelligence sharing and cooperation with federal agencies, including DHS

Any/all projects that have a terrorism nexus can be applied for and should be applied for. All projects must support and align with a Capability Target and Gap.

For guidelines and priorities according to region, see the region-specific guideline documents in Supporting Documents below.
