Grants to New Hampshire government agencies for emergency preparedness activities. Applicants are advised that required approvals must be obtained prior to applying. Funding is intended for activities to prevent terrorist attacks and other threats to national security. Eligible uses of funds include training, equipment replacement, and cybersecurity enhancements.

2022 HSGP continues to play an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System (NPS) by supporting the building, sustainment, and delivery of core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness Goal (NPG) of a secure and resilient Nation. FY 2022 HSGP is anticipated to provide funds to eligible entities to support state, local, tribal, and territorial efforts to prevent terrorism and other catastrophic events and to prepare the Nation for the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to the security of the United States.

The objective is to facilitate an integrated, all-of-Nation, risk-informed, capabilities-based approach to preparedness. Using the Core Capabilities, the anticipated focus of the 2022 Grant Program is:

  1. Terrorism preparedness, prevention, and recovery strategy for these grants to be effective.
  2. 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 2021, five priority areas attract the most concern. It is anticipated 2022 will follow this same priority list:
    1. Enhancing cybersecurity
    2. Enhancing the protection of soft targets/crowded places
    3. Enhancing information and intelligence sharing and analysis, and cooperation with federal agencies, including DHS
    4. Combating domestic violent extremism
    5. Addressing emergent threats (e.g., transnational criminal organizations, unmanned aircraft systems [UASs], weapons of mass destruction [WMD], etc.)
  3. Grantees are encouraged to utilize grant funding to maintain and sustain current critical core capabilities through investments in training and exercise, updates to current planning and procedures, and lifecycle replacement of equipment.
  4. New capabilities that are built using Homeland Security Grant funding must be deployable if needed to support regional and national efforts. All capabilities being built or sustained must have a clear linkage to the core capabilities of the National Preparedness Goal.

Under SHSGP, activities must support terrorism preparedness by building or enhancing capabilities that relate to the prevention of, protection from, response to, and recovery from terrorism (to be considered eligible). However, many capabilities which support terrorism preparedness simultaneously support preparedness for other hazards. Grantees must demonstrate this dual-purpose for any activities implemented under this program that are not explicitly focused on terrorism preparedness. 

Prime areas to consider when aligning regional needs and core capabilities to fill State strategic gaps are:

  1. Non routine PPE (cannot supplant routine use or budgeted PPE).
  2. Detection related equipment that is discipline allowed.
  3. Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive equipment (CBRNE)
  4. Search and Rescue equipment that is supported by Emergency Support Function needs (not including ESF #9 - Swiftwater).
  5. Explosive Device Mitigation & Remediation Equipment (but not to the level of that allowed for and FBI accredited EOD/bomb squad unit). Only Nashua and NHSP are certified to this level.
  6. Decontamination Equipment
  7. Allowed medical/EMS equipment
  8. SOU equipment but not what supplies a normal cadre for a team and only for State NHTOA recognized teams.

Pre-Application Information:

Competitive applications for 2022 are due at noon on December 22, 2021. No paper copies accepted.

Please note: Additional Federal approvals, such as NEPA/EHP approvals, can take up to 60+ days to complete. These factors should be included in potential timeline/timeframe considerations for this grant period.

Only the applying agency would receive the funds.

An agency can submit as many applications as they want. It is important that only one project be identified on each application.

Federal Homeland Security grant funds will be used to supplement (add to) existing funds, and will not supplant (replace) funds that have been locally appropriated for the same purpose.

How does the grant process work as far as getting reimbursed for expenditures? The sub-grants awarded by the DOS/GMB are reimbursement grants only, meaning that the jurisdiction must spend the money upfront for the grant approved items, complete the project installation and testing (if required) and then apply to DOS for reimbursement of those expenditures.
