"The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP) is pleased to announce the official launch of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2003 State Homeland Security Assessment and Strategy (SHSAS) process. As part of this effort, ODP has refined the SHSAS process that was originally established in FY 1999. The FY 2003 process allows states and local jurisdictions to update their needs assessment data to reflect post-September 11, 2001 realities, as well as identify progress on the priorities outlined in their initial homeland security strategies. Furthermore, the refined process will serve as a planning tool for state and local jurisdictions, and will assist ODP and its partners in better allocating federal resources for homeland security."
