ABSTRACT

FY2003 and FY2004 State Allocations for Selected Homeland Security Assistance Programs [Updated August 16, 2004]   [open pdf - 66KB]

From the Summary: "The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) provide assistance programs to state and local first responders and public health officials to prepare for, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks, including weapons of mass destruction (WMD) incidents. Most of the programs provide assistance funding to states, which in turn allocate funding to localities. Some programs, however, provide assistance directly to localities. Programs of this type include the Assistance to Firefighters Program (FIRE) and the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI), both administered by the Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP). These two federal departments (DHS and HHS) have allocated roughly $8.2 billion to states and localities in FY2003 and FY2004 for homeland security assistance. Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Congress has shown great interest in these assistance programs' allocations to states and localities. This report shows the state allocations for DHS and HHS homeland security assistance programs, as reported by their department documents or press releases. Additionally, this report shows per capita amounts for each program, as calculated by CRS [Congressional Research Service], using 2002 census estimates."
