Alternate Title: CBO Cost Estimate: S.594: National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium Act of 2017

"S. 594 would authorize the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to work with a consortium to assist state and local governments to prepare for and respond to cybersecurity risks and incidents. Since 2014, the department has awarded $13 million in grants to members of the National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium to deliver cybersecurity training and technical assistance to state and local governments. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] expects that DHS would continue to provide a similar level of support under S. 594. CBO estimates that DHS would provide $3 million in new grant funding each year, assuming appropriation of the estimated amounts. In total, implementing S. 594 would cost $15 million over the 2019-2023 period."
