Grant Description

Grants to Oregon local and tribal government agencies to mitigate, prevent, respond to, and recover from terrorism incidents and other catastrophic events. Applicants requesting support for training activities must contact program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended to address the planning, organization, equipment, training, and exercise needs to protect against, prepare for, and recover from acts of terrorism and other emergencies.

The State Homeland Security Grant Program (SHSP) supports implementation of state homeland security strategies to address planning, organization, equipment, training, and exercise (POETE) needs to prevent, prepare for, protect against, and respond to acts of terrorism and other catastrophic events. Use of SHSP funds must be consistent with and supportive of the State Homeland Security Strategy, the State Preparedness Report (SPR), State Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA), and federal priority areas designated in the FY22 Notice of Funding Opportunity. Linkages between specific projects undertaken with SHSP funds, and state strategic goals and objectives, will be highlighted through regular recipient reporting.

Eligible projects address an identified gap to prevent, prepare for, protect against, and respond to acts of terrorism or other catastrophic events, and support at least one of the state investment justifications.

Projects must implement at least one of the ten state investment justifications:

  1. Planning (SIJ)
  2. Emergency communication (SIJ)
  3. Chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosives (CBRNE) detection and response (SIJ)
  4. Community resilience and engagement (SIJ)
  5. Emergency operations centers (SIJ)
  6. Enhancing cybersecurity
  7. Enhancing the protection of soft targets/crowded places
  8. Enhancing information and intelligence sharing and analysis, and cooperation with federal agencies, including DHS
  9. Combating domestic violent extremism
  10. Addressing emergent threats
