March 19, 2014

WASHINGTON—DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson today announced the release of FY 2014 Funding Opportunity Announcements for six DHS preparedness grant programs totaling over $1.6 billion. The homeland security grants assist states, urban areas, tribal and territorial governments and nonprofit organizations, as well as the private sector to strengthen our nation’s ability to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks, major disasters, and other emergencies in support of the National Preparedness Goal and the National Preparedness System.

“The FY 2014 homeland security grants demonstrate the Department’s strong partnership at all levels of government and across the whole community to address a complex threat environment,” said Secretary Johnson. “The positive impact of these grant programs can be seen in neighborhoods across the country, and this year’s homeland security preparedness grant funding will further strengthen the nation’s ability to respond to a range of threats, disasters, and incidents.”
