Assessment and Strategy Development Update Process   [open pdf - 4KB]

"The Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP) will be assisting states with updating their needs assessment data and statewide domestic preparedness strategies in conjunction with the Fiscal Year 2003 State Domestic Preparedness Program. Completion of an updated needs assessment and domestic preparedness strategy will be a prerequisite for receipt of ODP support for equipment acquisitions, training, exercises and technical assistance in Fiscal Year 2004. The original needs assessment and strategy development process was undertaken in concert with the ODP Fiscal Year 1999 State Domestic Preparedness Equipment Program. Much of the information submitted as part of this process was collected prior to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and an urgent need exists to refresh this data. In addition, most states have now received four fiscal years of domestic preparedness assistance, and the funding available for domestic preparedness has grown substantially in both scope and purpose. Many state strategies require revision to reflect these developments."
