Homeland Security grant application period open for Wyoming communities

The SHSP grant is 100 percent federally funded and provides funding to eligible applicants based on Wyoming’s homeland security strategies and priorities.

State, local, tribal governments and other special districts are eligible to apply for funding. At least 30 percent of the combined SHSP funds allocated must be dedicated toward law enforcement terrorism prevention activities. The state must pass through 80 percent of the grant allocation to local entities.

The SHSP provides grants to support the implementation of risk-driven, capabilities-based state homeland security strategies to address capability gaps and sustain existing capabilities.

“The threat landscape is evolving and is now more diverse and complex,” Wyoming Office of Homeland Director Lynn Budd said. “Our state and local jurisdictions must adapt our strategies to combat these threats. This grant and the funds it provides will improve the safety and security of Wyoming communities.”

This year, the priority areas defined within the grant are enhancing cybersecurity, enhancing information and intelligence sharing, security of soft targets/crowded places, combating domestic violent extremism, community preparedness and resilience, and election security.

The SHSP provides funds to assist state, local and tribal efforts to build, sustain, and deliver the capabilities necessary to prepare and respond to acts of terrorism. The fiscal year 2022 SHSP grant award for Wyoming is anticipated to be similar to 2021’s allocation of approximately $4.5 million.
