Grants to USA and territories state administrative agencies to enable tribal, local, state, and territorial governments to increase security and prepare for catastrophes. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline. The purpose of the program is to support the building, sustainment, and delivery of core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness Goal of a secure and resilient nation.
Among the five basic homeland security missions noted in the DHS Quadrennial Homeland Security Review, HSGP supports the goal to Strengthen National Preparedness and Resilience. In FY 2021, there are three components of HSGP:
The 2018-2022 FEMA Strategic Plan creates a shared vision for reducing the risks posed by terrorism and sets an ambitious, yet achievable, path forward to unify and further professionalize emergency management across the country. HSGP supports the goals of Building a Culture of Preparedness and Readying the Nation for Catastrophic Disasters. We invite our stakeholders and partners to also adopt these priorities and join us in building a more prepared and resilient Nation, as preparedness is a shared responsibility and funding should support priorities that are most impactful and demonstrate the greatest return on investment.
For FY 2021, DHS is focused on the criticality of information sharing and collaboration to building a national culture of preparedness and protecting against terrorism and other emerging threats to national security.
The following are the five priority areas for FY 2021, along with the corresponding percentage of SHSP and UASI funds that each recipient will be required to designate to each priority area in order to obtain a full allocation of SHSP and UASI funds:
