This is the April 28, 2021 hearing on "State and Local Perspectives on DHS Preparedness Grant Programs," held before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Val Butler Demings: "We are here today to discuss the Department of Homeland Security's preparedness grant programs. These grant programs were created following one of the Nation's darkest moments, the September 11 terrorist attacks. [...] Through the Homeland Security Grant Programs, the Department's premier grant suite, DHS has made important investments to elevate the Nation's homeland security posture. These programs provide Federal assistance to fill gaps related to State, local, Tribal, and territorial governments' ability to effectively prepare for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate terrorist attacks. [...] I look forward to your testimony today about how grant programs are used to strengthen your communities, the effect of the recent changes to the programs in fiscal year 2020 and 2021, and the future of the grant programs." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David Y. Ige, Jared M. Maples, Orlando Rolon, and Robert V. Altman.
