U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
Grants to USA tribal governments in the contiguous states for activities that build tribal capacity to respond to security threats. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to provide eligible tribes with opportunities to strengthen their capacities to prevent, prepare for, protect against, and respond to potential terrorist attacks.
The Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Tribal Homeland Security Grant Program (THSGP) is one of three grant programs that constitute the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA’s) focus on enhancing the ability of state, local, tribal and territorial governments, as well as nonprofits, to prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks. These grant programs are part of a comprehensive set of measures authorized by Congress and implemented by DHS to help strengthen the nation’s communities against potential terrorist attacks. Among the five basic homeland security missions noted in the 2018 DHS Quadrennial Homeland Security Review, the THSGP supports the goal to Strengthen National Preparedness and Resilience.
The 2018-2022 FEMA Strategic Plan creates a shared vision for reducing the risks posed by terrorism and sets an ambitious, yet achievable, path forward to unify and further professionalize emergency management across the country. The THSGP supports the goals of Building a Culture of Preparedness and of Readying the Nation for Catastrophic Disasters. We invite our stakeholders and partners to also adopt these priorities and join us in building a more prepared and resilient nation.
Finally, for FY 2020, DHS is focused on the criticality of information sharing and collaboration to building a national culture of preparedness and protecting against terrorism and other emerging threats to our national security.
Given the evolving threat landscape, it is incumbent upon DHS/FEMA to continuously evaluate the national risk profile and set priorities that help ensure appropriate allocation of scarce security dollars. In assessing the national risk profile for FY 2020, three areas attract the most concern:
1) Enhancing cybersecurity;
2) Enhancing the protection of soft targets/crowded places; and,
3) Addressing emerging threats (e.g., transnational criminal organizations, weapons of mass destruction [WMD], unmanned aerial systems [UASs], etc.).
Likewise, there are several enduring security needs that crosscut the homeland security enterprise. The following are second-tier priorities that help recipients implement a comprehensive approach to securing communities:
1) Effective planning;
2) Training and awareness campaigns;
3) Equipment and capital projects; and
