"One of the core missions of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is to enhance the ability of state, territory, local, and tribal governments to prevent, protect against, respond to and recover from terrorist attacks and other disasters. FEMA's [Federal Emergency Management Agency] comprehensive suite of grant programs are an important part of the Administration's larger, coordinated effort to strengthen homeland security preparedness. These programs implement objectives addressed in a series of post-9/11 laws, strategy documents, plans and Homeland Security Presidential Directives (HSPDs). The seven preparedness programs within the Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) are: 1. Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) 2. State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) 3. Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) 4. Metropolitan Medical Response System (MMRS) 5. Citizen Corps Program (CCP) 6. State Homeland Security Program Tribal (SHSP Tribal) 7. Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) 8. Operation Stonegarden Grant Program (OPSG) Together, these grants may fund a wide range of preparedness activities, to include planning, organization, equipment purchase, training, exercises and management and administration costs. These programs support objectives outlined in the National Preparedness Guidelines and related national preparedness doctrine, such as the National Incident Management System, National Response Framework and the National Infrastructure Protection Plan. Applications for these programs are due March 20, 2009. DHS has also created multiple opportunities for applicants to consult with the department's Grant Programs Directorate and subject matter experts during the review process and prior to the announcement of awards."
