State Homeland Security Grant Program (SHSP)
B - Readily funds technology as part of an award
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
The SHSP is a core assistance program that provides funds to build capabilities at the State, local, tribal, and territorial levels, to enhance our national resilience to absorb disruptions and rapidly recover from incidents both natural and manmade as well as to implement the goals and objectives included in State homeland security strategies and initiatives in their State Preparedness Report (SPR).
SHSP supports the implementation of state Homeland Security Strategies to address the identified planning, organization, equipment, training, and exercise needs to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism and other catastrophic events. SHSP also provides funding to implement initiatives in the State Preparedness Report.
Activities implemented under SHSP must support terrorism preparedness by building or enhancing capabilities that relate to the prevention of, protection from, mitigation of, response to, and recovery from terrorism in order to be considered eligible. However, many capabilities which support terrorism preparedness simultaneously support preparedness for other hazards. Grantees must demonstrate this dual-use quality for any activities implemented under this program that are not explicitly focused on terrorism preparedness.
History of Funding
The FY15 allocation to the State Homeland Security Program was $402,000,000.
Pass-through is defined as an obligation on the part of the States to make funds available to local units of government, combinations of local units, or other specific groups or organizations. The States pass-through requirement must be met within 45 days of the award date.
Awards are made to State Administrative Agencies (SAAs) of all 56 states and territories. State agencies, local law enforcement agencies, and other nonprofit organizations may apply to states for sub-grants.
SAAs were to apply to FEMA on behalf of state and local agencies by April 25, 2016. Local deadlines vary based on state administration.
State allocations may be found in Appendix A of the official program guidance listed in the contact section of this posting. The SAA must obligate at least 80% of the funds awarded under SHSP to local units of government within 45 days of receipt of the funds. Award amounts vary based on state administration.
