The purpose of the Federal Fiscal Year 2018
State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) is to support state and local efforts to
prevent terrorism and other catastrophic events and to prepare Georgia for the
threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to its security. The HSGP grant
provides funding to implement investments that build, sustain, and deliver
FEMA’s 32 core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness
Goal of a secure and resilient Nation. Building, sustaining, and delivering
core capabilities are not exclusive to any single level of government,
organization, or community, but rather, require the combined effort of the
whole community, inclusive of children, individuals with disabilities and
others with access and functional needs, diverse communities, and people with
limited English proficiency.
The HSGP supports the core capabilities
across the five mission areas of Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response,
and Recovery based on allowable costs. The HSGP supports the Quadrennial
Homeland Security Review Mission to Strengthen National Preparedness and
Resilience. HSGP funds a range of activities, including planning, organization,
equipment purchase, training, exercises, and management and administration
across all core capabilities and mission areas. At least eighty percent (80%)
of funds must be passed through to local or tribal units of government. At
least twenty-five percent (25%) of the overall HSGP funds received by the state
must be dedicated towards law enforcement terrorism prevention activities
