Background and Discussion:

This grant is funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security via the Office of the Governor, Homeland Security Grants Division and includes a suite of risk-based grants to assist state, local, tribal and territorial efforts in preventing, protecting against, mitigating, responding to and recovering from acts of terrorism and other threats related to regional security. This grant provides grantees with the resources required for implementation of the National Preparedness System and working toward the National Preparedness Goal of a secure and resilient nation. The County has received funding from this grant program since 2002.


Expected Impact:

If accepted, the County will receive $46,813 to implement funds with Constable Precinct 7's project that would impact the County's ability to interoperable communication during their response to terrorist events and other emergencies.



Alternative Options:

Without this funding the County would need to find alternate funding, possibly utilize general funds, to maintain a robust Homeland Security Program.
