"Fiscal Year 2006 (FY06) marks the first time that DHS asked State and Urban Area applicants to develop Investment Justifications as part of their HSGP [Homeland Security Grant Program] applications. The purpose of the Investment Justifications was to demonstrate the anticipated effectiveness of State and Urban Area's proposed solutions in meeting identified needs. The HSGP application review process incorporated peer reviewers to evaluate the anticipated effectiveness of these proposed solutions. Peer review teams assigned, effectiveness scores to individual investments and an overall effectiveness score to each State, and Urban Area's submission. Effectiveness scores are paired with the DHS risk analysis scores to determine final HSGP allocations.
