Grants to USA local and state agencies and port authorities to increase port security and protect infrastructure. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline. Funding is intended to improve port security through comprehensive risk management efforts.
The PSGP provides funds to state, local, and private sector maritime partners to support increased port-wide risk management and protect critical surface transportation infrastructure from acts of terrorism, major disasters, and other emergencies.
