Homeland Security Grants

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) awards the Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) to enhance the ability of states, territories, and urban areas to prepare for, prevent, and respond to terrorist attacks and other major disasters. HSGP funds can be used for preparedness planning, equipment acquisition, training, exercises, management, and administration in order to obtain resources that are critical to building and sustaining capabilities that are aligned with the National Preparedness Goal and respective State and Urban Area Homeland Security Strategies.

In Federal Fiscal Year 2013, DHS’s Homeland Security Grant Program awarded $12,857,481 to Washington State.
