The Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) integrates the State Homeland Security Program (SHSP), the Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI), the Citizen Corps Program (CCP) and the Metropolitan Medical Response System (MMRS) Program Grants into a single application kit. Funding from this combined program will significantly enhance the ability of states, territories, urban areas, and local agencies to prevent, deter, respond to, and recover from threats and incidents of terrorism. The Governor of the State of Texas has designated the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) as the State Administrative Agency (SAA) to apply for and administer the funds under HSGP.
For more information regarding available grant programs, refer to FEMA's grant and assistance program website at: http://www.fema.gov/grants
The SAA is the only agency eligible to apply for HSGP funds and is responsible for obligating HSGP funds to local units of government and other designated recipients.
