CAPCOG seeks projects for Homeland Security Grant

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

The Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) is accepting requests from counties and cities in the CAPCOG region for projects to be funded through the FY 2015 Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP).

As in previous years, it is anticipated that Fiscal Year 2015 HSGP funding will continue to be limited and will focus on sustaining capabilities developed during prior funding cycles. CAPCOG is awaiting additional guidance about specific federal and state priorities and will make this information available on the CAPCOG website as it becomes available.

This grant is being administered in accordance with the “Capital Area Council of Governments FY 2015 Homeland Security Program Regional Grant Process,” as approved by the CAPCOG Executive Committee Sept. 10, 2014.

> Read the FY 2015 Homeland Security Program Regional Grant Process.

To apply, each jurisdiction must submit a project worksheet form for each project no later than 5 p.m., Monday, Jan. 19, 2015. Instructions for completion of this form are contained in it. Late or incomplete submissions cannot be accepted.

In addition, jurisdictions planning to apply for this funding must complete a survey regarding their implementation of the National Incident Management System (NIMS). Failure to complete this survey by the deadline, Dec. 4, 2015, will disqualify jurisdictions from consideration for Fiscal Year 2015 HSGP funding. Jurisdictions are encouraged to complete this survey even if they do not plan to apply for HSGP funding.

> Take the survey.

For any questions or request for additional information, please contact Ed Schaefer, CAPCOG’s Homeland Security director.
