Grants to Missouri units of government in eligible locations for projects that increase security and address threats of terrorism. Funding is intended to improve the prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery from acts of terrorism. Priority will be given to proposals that align to National Priorities. Eligible applicants are located outside of the geographical boundaries of the St. Louis Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI).

Five priority areas for FY 2021:
  • Enhancing cybersecurity
  • Enhancing the protection of soft targets/crowded places
  • Enhancing information and intelligence sharing and cooperation with federal and state agencies, including DHS/OHS
  • Combating domestic violent extremism
  • Addressing emergent threats (e.g., unmanned aerial systems [UASs], etc.)
Allowable projects made in support of the national priorities, as well as other capability-enhancing projects must have a nexus to terrorism preparedness and fall into the categories of planning, organization, exercises, training, or equipment, aligned to closing capability gaps or sustaining capabilities identified in the State THIRA/SPR. The SHSP supports investments that improve the ability of regions to:
  • Prevent a threatened or an actual act of terrorism;
  • Protect citizens, residents, visitors, and assets against the threats that pose the greatest risk to the security of the United States;
  • Mitigate the loss of life and property by lessening the impact of future catastrophic events;
  • Respond quickly to save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs in the aftermath of a catastrophic incident; and/or
  • Recover through a focus on the timely restoration, strengthening, accessibility, and revitalization of infrastructure, housing, and a sustainable economy, as well as the health, social, cultural, historic, and environmental fabric of communities affected by a catastrophic incident, and do so in a manner that engages the whole community while ensuring the protection of civil rights. 
Multiple Purpose or Dual-Use of Funds: For SHSP many activities that support the achievement of core capabilities related to the national priorities and terrorism preparedness may simultaneously support enhanced preparedness for other hazards unrelated to acts of terrorism. However, all SHSP funded projects must assist subrecipients in achieving core capabilities related to preventing, preparing for, protecting against, or responding to acts of terrorism per section 2008(c) of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (6 U.S.C. § 609(c).
