This document compares funding differences for Department of Homeland Security preparedness grants between Fiscal Years 2010 and 2011. From the document: "One of the core missions of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is to enhance the ability of state, territory, local, and tribal governments to prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks and other disasters. DHS' comprehensive suite of homeland security preparedness grant programs are an important part of the Administration's larger, coordinated effort to strengthen homeland security preparedness. These programs implement objectives addressed in a series of post-9/11 laws, strategy documents, plans, and Homeland Security Presidential Directives (HSPDs). DHS grant programs fund a wide range of preparedness activities including planning, organization, equipment purchase, training, exercises, and grant management and administration costs. These programs support key Administration priorities and objectives, as well as objectives outlined in the National Preparedness Guidelines and related national preparedness doctrine, such as the National Incident Management System, the National Response Framework, and the National Infrastructure Protection Plan."
