This document provides an overview of the Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP). "One of the core missions of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is to enhance the ability of state, territory, local, and tribal governments to prevent, protect against, respond to and recover from terrorist attacks and other disasters. FEMA's comprehensive suite of grant programs is an important part of the Administration's larger, coordinated effort to strengthen homeland security preparedness. These programs implement objectives addressed in a series of post-9/11 laws, strategy documents, plans and Homeland Security Presidential Directives (HSPDs). The Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) is comprised of four interconnected grant programs: State Homeland Security Program (SHSP); Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI); Metropolitan Medical Response System (MMRS); [and] Citizen Corps Program (CCP). The HSGP is one tool among a comprehensive set of measures authorized by Congress and implemented by the Administration to help strengthen the nation against risks associated with potential terrorist attacks."
