Law Enforcement Terrorism Prevention Program (LETPP) 4. Citizen Corps Program (CCP) 5. Emergency Management Performance Grants (EMPG) 6. Metropolitan Medical Response System (MMRS) Program Encourages regional collaborative preparedness efforts Expenditures must be consistent with and supportive of implementation of the State/Urban Area Homeland Security Strategy

8 State Homeland Security Program Provides funds to enhance the capability of state and local units of government to prevent, deter, respond to, and recover from incidents of terrorism involving the use of CBRNE weapons and cyber attacks.

9 Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) Provides financial assistance to address the unique planning, equipment, training and exercise needs of high-threat, high-density urban areas Program intent is to create a sustainable national model program to enhance security and overall preparedness to prevent, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism Provides the opportunity to enhance regional preparedness efforts Program has grown significantly over 4 iterations to include additional urban areas 7 UAs (FY03) -> 30 UAs (FY03) -> 50 UAs (FY04) -> 50 UAs (FY05) total urban areas

10 Law Enforcement Terrorism Prevention Program Seeks to provide law enforcement communities with enhanced capabilities for detecting, deterring, disrupting, and preventing acts of terrorism by providing funds for the following activities: Information Sharing to Preempt Terrorist Attacks Target Hardening to Reduce Vulnerability Threat Recognition Intervention Activities Interoperable Communications

11 Citizen Corps Mission: To have everyone participate in making America safer Forming and sustaining Citizen Corps Councils Public education and outreach Training for citizens in prevention, preparedness, and response skills Participation in planning and exercises Volunteer service to support emergency responders, disaster relief, community safety Coordination with other DHS efforts Expenditures must be linked to goal or objective in state strategy

14 Buffer Zone Protection Program Goals Reduce site-specific vulnerabilities to terrorism at 10,000 sites over a 5 year period (approx 2,000 by end of FY05) Transition federal-centric protection programs to community-based security planning and execution Strengthen partnerships between federal, state, tribal, and local governments and local owners and operators Establish and maintain a database of all Buffer Zone Protection Plans and be able to retrieve threat/vulnerability data for a specific facility or type of facility to support analysis and decision making

15 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Purpose: To protect the health and safety of the public and fire fighting personnel against fire and fire related hazards and to provide assistance for fire prevention program Program Areas: Operations and Fire Fighter Safety Fire Prevention Fire Fighting Vehicles airport and port FDs not eligible

16 Competitive Training Grants Program $30 million available for national scope training initiatives FY 2005 issue areas: Develop, conduct and maintain a Continuity of Operations Program Improve intelligence and operational capabilities of State and local communities to prevent and deter acts of terrorism Provide the skills necessary to develop self reliant community groups and individual citizens when preparing for, responding to and recovering from an incident of national significance Enhance a transit systems capacity to prevent and/or manage the consequences of terrorist attacks Develop or augment port facilities ability to prevent, deter, and/or respond to domestic terrorist acts Increase or enhance the capabilities of health care providers for situations involving mass casualty care operations

17 Port Security Grant Program

18 Programmatic Focus When discussing the differences between port security efforts, such as PSG, and supply chain security efforts, such as operation safe commerce (OSC), it is important to realize that the supply chain is a transportation system and the port is a node within that system Supply chain security is a broad reaching effort that is truly global in nature and must take into account the extremely dynamic and complex nature of international logistics. DHS is securing cargo o and improving supply chain security through programs like OSC - a layered approach beginning oversees Port security focuses on one specific node of the supply chain. However, even within this node, there are various levels of activity and divergent roles and responsibilities. The PSG program has an a even more narrow focus: physical security enhancements for port terminals, passenger vessels, and ferries

19 Port Security Grant (PSG) Program PSG Round 1 Administered by MARAD Provided $92,022,239 PSG Rounds 2-42 Administered by TSA Round 2 - $170,531,315 Round 3 $179,025,900 Round 4 - $49,429,867 FY 2005 Port Security Grant Funding Administered by ODP Provided $141,969,967 through PSG An additional $3,887,161 specifically for Ferry Security provided through Submissions the Transit Security Grant Program 280 Applications 623 projects $459,742, in requests

20 Changes to the PSG Program in FY 2005 Direct a majority of the available funds to the Nation s highest risk ports Developed formula with USCG and IAIP Focus: Physical protection/ security of facilities versus people (as in UASI formula) Risk = Consequence X Vulnerability X Threat Consequence people, economic, national security, port- specific special considerations (hazardous materials, oil) Vulnerability distance from open water, number of port calls, presence of tankers Threat credible threats and incidents (intelligence community, USCG, IA), less credible threats and incidents (operational indicators), vessels of interest End result: Risk-based prioritization of ports Sixty-six (66) port areas identified as eligible July for 29, grants 2005 in the FY 2005 PSG Program

21 Changes to the PSG Program in FY 2005 Work with ODP s s federal partners to identify national priorities for funding based on risk: Protection against small craft attacks Underwater attacks and vehicle borne improvised explosives Enhanced explosives detection capabilities for the owners/operators of vehicle ferries and associated facilities Maintain eligibility of owner/operators of facilities in federally ly regulated ports, terminals and U.S. inspected passenger vessels, but with caveat that port authorities and state/local agencies that provide layered protection to regulated entities are also eligible for funding f Cash match required for private sector applicants

22 Changes to the PSG Program in FY 2005 Funding will be awarded directly to the recipient, rather than through t a State Administrative Agency (SAA) or other intermediary Streamlined evaluation process Initial Screening Field Review Projects that support national port security priorities Projects that address priorities outlined in the AMSP Projects that address additional security priorities as determined ed by the COTP Projects that offer the highest potential for risk-reduction reduction for the least cost National Review Relationship of the project to one or more of the national priorities ities Relationship of the project to one or more of the local priorities COTP Ranking Location of project (based on the port area s s risk-based ranking) Awards coordinated with COTP, MARAD Region Director, AMSC, SAA(s)

23 Port-Wide Risk Management Congressional conferees expressed concern that port security grants made to independent terminal operators are not coordinated from a port-wide standpoint. In FY 2005, field reviews will focus on prioritization of projects that support port- wide risk reduction in concert with the Area Maritime Security PlansP lans.. In addition, all project reviews will be coordinated with the AMSCs. In FY 2006, a port-wide risk management planning process will be implemented: Process is currently being jointly developed by ODP and USCG Will leverage USCG PSRAT Tool and SLGCP Special Needs Jurisdiction Risk Assessment Methodology AMSC s s will become the focal point Will build upon the existing Area Maritime Security Plans required ed under MTSA The port-wide risk-management planning process will be prototyped during FY 2005 and implemented as a program requirement for the FY 2006 grant cycle.

24 FY 06 Grant Funding Both chambers of Congress have completed and passed their respective Homeland Security Bills for FY 06 House contains $150 Million, up $25 million over FY 05 Senate contains $195 million, up $45 million over FY05 We are now waiting for the HLS conference
