FY2010 Department of Homeland Security Assistance to States and Localities
Shawn Reese (au)
Since FY2002, Congress has appropriated more than $29 billion for homeland security assistance to states, specified urban areas and critical infrastructures (such as ports and rail systems), the District of Columbia, and U.S. insular areas. The Grant Programs Directorate and the Nat. Preparedness Directorate, within the Federal Emergency Mgt. Agency (FEMA), administer these programs for the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS). Each assistance program has either an allhazardspurpose or a terrorism preparedness purpose. These programs are primarily used by first responders, which include firefighters, emergency medical personnel, emergency managers, and law enforcement officers. Specifically, the appropriations for these programs provide for grants, training, exercises, and other support tostates, territories, and tribal and joint jurisdictions to prepare for terrorism and major disasters. This report provides information on enacted FY2009 and proposed FY2010 funding for these grant programs. It also identifies potential issues Congress may wish to address during the appropriation process. Tables.
