Grant Description
Grants to Missouri government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and quasi-governmental organizations for terrorism prevention and response. Funding is intended to increase community security through planning, training and awareness, equipment and capital projects, and exercises. The objective of the HSP is to fund state and local efforts to prevent terrorism and prepare for threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to the country's security.
SHSP assists state and local efforts to build, sustain, and deliver the capabilities necessary to prevent, prepare for, protect against, and respond to acts of terrorism.
Given the evolving threat landscape, DHS/FEMA has evaluated the national risk profile and set priorities that help inform appropriate allocation of scarce security dollars. In assessing the national risk profile for FY 2023, six priority areas attract the most concern. The following are the six priority areas for FY 2023:
  1. Enhancing the protection of soft targets/crowded places
  2. Enhancing information and intelligence sharing and analysis
  3. Combating domestic violent extremism
  4. Enhancing cybersecurity
  5. Enhancing community preparedness and resilience
  6. Enhancing election security

For more information on priority areas, see

Likewise, there are several enduring security needs that crosscut the homeland security enterprise, to which recipients should consider allocating funding across core capability gaps and national priorities. The following are enduring needs that help recipients implement a comprehensive approach to securing communities:
  1. Effective planning;
  2. Training and awareness campaigns
  3. Equipment and capital projects; and
  4. Exercises. 


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Eligible Applicants:
• Local units of government
• State units of government
• Nongovernmental organizations, quasi-governmental organizations (e.g., RPC’s and COG’s), nonprofit organizations (e.g., Red Cross)

Prior to allocation of any federal preparedness awards, subrecipients must ensure and maintain adoption and implementation of NIMS.

In support of the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal), SHSP subrecipients must belong to, be in, or act as a temporary member of EMAC.
