Grants to USA and territories state administrative agencies to enable local, state, territorial, and tribal governments to prepare for and prevent acts of terrorism and other catastrophes. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.
The objective of the FY 2019 HSGP is to provide funds to eligible entities to support state, local, tribal, and territorial efforts to prevent terrorism and other catastrophic events and to prepare the Nation for the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to the security of the United States.
HSGP is composed of three grant programs:
State Homeland Security Program (SHSP): The SHSP supports state, local, tribal, and territorial preparedness activities that address high priority preparedness gaps across all core capabilities that support terrorism preparedness.
Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI): The UASI Program assists high-threat, high-density Urban Areas in efforts to build, sustain, and deliver the capabilities necessary to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism.
Operation Stonegarden (OPSG): OPSG supports enhanced cooperation and coordination among Customs and Border Protection (CBP), United States Border Patrol (USBP), and federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement agencies. OPSG provides funding to support joint efforts to secure the United States’ borders along routes of ingress from international borders to include travel corridors in states bordering Mexico and Canada as well as states and territories with international water borders.
DHS/FEMA continually assesses changes to the threat landscape to further the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal) of a secure and resilient nation. This analysis provides a perspective on critical preparedness trends for whole community partners to use to inform program priorities, allocate resources, and communicate with stakeholders about issues of shared concern. DHS/FEMA have identified the following as national priority areas:
- Emerging Threats, including Cybersecurity
- Lifelines (more information found in this fact sheet and toolkit)
- Safety and Security
- Food, Water, Sheltering
- Health and Medical
- Hazardous Material
