Fiscal Year 2012 Homeland Security Grant Program, Supplemental Resource: Children in Disasters Guidance   [open pdf - 204KB]

"Homeland Security Grant Program awards may be used by states and local jurisdictions to ensure that the needs of children are met through disaster planning. Consistent with the development and sustainment of the core capabilities and capability targets identified in the National Preparedness Goal, this supplement provides guidance for grantees to incorporate children into their planning and purchase of equipment and supplies; provide training to a broad range of child-specific providers, agencies, and entities; and exercise capabilities relating to children, such as evacuation, sheltering and emergency medical care."
