"The Department of Commerce National Telecommunication and Information Administration (NTIA), in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), announces the allocation of over $968 million to all 56 States and Territories for the PSIC [Public Safety Interoperable Communications] Grant Program. These one-time grants will be awarded by September 30, 2007 and grant projects will be completed by September 30, 2010. PSIC Grant Program applications will be due August 20, 2007. The PSIC funding allocation determination leveraged the existing Fiscal Year 2007 DHS risk methodology. In making grant determinations, NTIA and DHS considered the threat, vulnerability, and consequences of natural disasters and an attack on critical infrastructure using an all hazards approach. To ensure effectiveness, funding will be released to the grantees after an interagency review of their Statewide Plans and Investment Justifications. The PSIC Allocation Announcement complies with the deadline set forth in the Call Home Act of 2006. The specific allocation amounts for each of the 56 States and Territories are included as Appendix A."
