"Through the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP), state and local emergency prevention, preparedness, and response personnel will receive over $2 billion in formula grant funding for our nation's homeland security in Fiscal Year 2004. In an effort to streamline funding to the states and territories, the Department of Homeland Security is consolidating the administration of three programs within ODP. While continuing to direct the State Homeland Security Program (formerly the State Homeland Security Grant Program), ODP will also now administer the Citizen Corps and the new Law Enforcement Terrorism Prevention Programs. All three programs have been integrated into one solicitation to better facilitate the organization and coordination of preparedness funding. State and local allocations of grant funds must be guided by the State Homeland Security Assessments and Strategies due to DHS-ODP by December 31, 2003, and, where appropriate, Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) strategies. UASI strategies are due to DHS-ODP by November 30, 2003."
