"The FY 2006 Buffer Zone Protection Program (BZPP) is an important component of the Administration's larger, coordinated effort to strengthen the security of America's critical infrastructure. This program implements the objectives addressed in a series of laws, strategy documents, plans and Homeland Security Presidential Directives (HSPDs). Of particular significance are the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal)' and the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP). […].The FY 2006 BZPP, as a component of the Infrastructure Protection Program (IPP), provides funds to build capabilities at the State and local levels to prevent and protect against terrorist incidents. This is primarily done through planning and equipment acquisition. These capabilities support the implementation of the goals included in Homeland Security Strategies, including the NIPP. BZPP funding directly supports the prevention and protection mission areas and addresses many of the National Priorities, as well as the related target capabilities. The FY 2006 BZPP provides funds to support the implementation of Buffer Zone Plans (BZPs) outside the perimeter of identified critical infrastructure/key resource (CI/KR) sites. These plans are intended to develop effective preventive and protective measures that make it more difficult for terrorists to conduct surveillance or launch attacks within the immediate vicinity of high priority critical infrastructure targets. They also increase the preparedness capabilities of the local jurisdiction(s) responsible for the security and safety of the surrounding communities."
