"The Systems Support Division (SSD) within the Office of State and Local Government Coordination and Preparedness (SLGCP) is launching the next phase of the Commercial Equipment Direct Assistance Program (CEDAP) to provide smaller law enforcement and other emergency responder agencies working in task forces with equipment items that will enhance and support regional response, mutual aid, and interoperability of responder equipment. Equipment available in this phase includes defensive and protective equipment, detection, search and rescue equipment, information sharing and risk assessment software, and interoperable communications technology. Eligible applicants include agencies and departments not currently receiving funding from UASI [Urban Areas Security Initiative]. Agencies and departments in suburban, rural and border areas are encouraged to apply for equipment that will be used to respond through mutual aid and to protect infrastructure in those areas."
