"The Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP) has recently received several requests from states seeking clarification on allowable costs for training funds. Specifically, in question is whether travel expenses, per diem, and lodging associated with students' attendance of ODP sponsored training courses are allowable expenses under the State Homeland Security Grant Program Part II (SHSGP II). Also in question is whether backfill costs associated with sending personnel to training are eligible expenses under SHSGP II. Based upon further review of legislative language and intent and program guidance, ODP has determined these expenses are allowable under SHSGP Part II, provided that the training being attended is ODP sponsored training."
