Homeland Security Grant Program

The Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) is a Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant program. Oregon currently receives funding under two HSGP programs: the State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) and the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI). Together, these grants fund a range of activities designed to prepare for, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism.

OEM expects County and Tribal Emergency Managers to coordinate with all stakeholders within their geographic area to identify threats, vulnerabilities, and their capabilities to address them. Counties and tribes are not entitled to SHSP funds for their own objectives alone but must work with all partners to identify needs and projects to address those needs. The County and Tribal Emergency Manager is responsible for selecting those projects that will be submitted to OEM, but should do so as equitably, and transparently as possible. See OEM’s updated guidance “FY24 Local Project Selection Guidance.”
