Homeland Security sets mandatory grant workshops

Monday, November 05, 2018

CAPCOG will hold two mandatory workshops for local jurisdictions seeking State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) funding, which has funded projects and public safety equipment such as regional training exercises, disaster planning, command vehicles, hazardous material and SWAT team gear. The workshops will be at 1:30 p.m. Dec. 11 and 9:30 a.m.. Dec. 13 at CAPCOG, 6800 Burleson Road Building 310, Suite 165 in Austin.

CAPCOG anticipates between $1.3 and $1.4 million in SHSP funds will be allocated to the region for the upcoming year. While funds are awarded to local jurisdictions, part of CAPCOG’s ranking criteria is that projects and equipment can be deployed regionally. Workshop attendees will learn about the program’s application process, state and federal rules, supporting documentation, and key dates for the program. As part of this grant process, CAPCOG provides the state with a ranked funding recommendation, but the Office of Governor selects which projects will receive funding.
