FEMA has announced that the FY 2020 Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) deadline has been extended. The program totals more than $1 billion in funds to help states and territories prevent, protect against, respond to and recover from potential terrorist acts and other hazards.
You have less than one month to apply to the 2020 Homeland Security Grant Program. The deadline has been moved to April 30, 2020, so time is running out.
HSGP includes the following programs:
- State Homeland Security Program (SHSP): Addresses capabilities identified in Urban Area, State, and regional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessments (THIRAs).
- Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI): Addresses the unique needs of high-threat, high-density Urban Areas.
- Operation Stonegarden (OPSG): Helps secure US borders including States and territories with international water borders.
The FY 2020 HSGP plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System by supporting the building, sustainment, and delivery of core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness Goal of a secure and resilient Nation. The building, sustainment, and delivery of these core capabilities are not exclusive to any single level of government, organization, or community, but rather, require the combined effort of the whole community.
If you haven’t yet applied, there’s still time, and you can get grant help if you need to purchase radiation detection equipment, chemical and material identification analyzers, or narcotics analyzers. Fill out this form and you will be contacted by a representative.
Grant applications are due April 30th 2020!
