"Release of the Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP) FY 2004 Homeland Security Grant funding is based on the submission of a State Homeland Security Strategy. The strategy should consider the use of all federal, state, urban area, local and private resources that are available to the state. It should contain broadbased goals of intent that address areas of overall preparedness and response enhancement to Weapons of Mass Destruction(WMD) terrorism events within each state. The state should have at least one goal that addresses each of the following areas: Prevention, Response, and Recovery. For each goal, the state should establish at least one objective, which should focus on the efforts needed to increase capabilities within the Planning, Organization, Equipment, Training and Exercise program areas. When these objectives are accomplished, they should provide the important steps necessary to achieve the mission, vision, and goals of the strategy."
