Grants of up to $15,000 to nonprofit organizations, quasi-governmental and non-governmental organizations, and local units of government in eligible locations to develop anti-terrorism strategies. The purpose of this program is to enhance the protection of soft targets/crowded places. Eligible entities must be located outside the geographical boundaries of the St. Louis Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI).

The objective of the FY 2021 SHSP is to fund state and local efforts to prevent terrorism and prepare the Nation for threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to the security of the United States. This grant program focuses only on the national priority of Enhancing the Protection of Soft Targets/Crowded Places.

Funding guidelines support the five mission areas—Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery—and associated core capabilities within the Goal. Allowable projects made in support of the Enhancing the Protection of Soft Targets/Crowded Places national priority, 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)].
