Homeland Security grant process opens

Tuesday, December 08, 2015

The FY 2016 State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) grant application period began in December. SHSP grant funding assists local governments with purchasing and maintaining tools and equipment, training and planning required to respond to natural disasters and terrorist incidents.

The Homeland Security Division will conduct mandatory pre-application workshops for entities seeking funding at 1:30 p.m. Dec. 11 and 1:30 p.m. Dec. 16, 2015 at CAPCOG in Austin.

Applications must be submitted to CAPCOG by Jan. 15, 2016 to be considered.

Last year CAPCOG facilitated the allocation of about $1.9 million to 29 regional projects supporting interoperable communications, citizen volunteer response programs, rescue and terroristic-threat-response equipment purchases, and other emergency services programs. Since 2003, $36.4 million in funds have been awarded regionally.
