FY2019 SHSP Notice of Funding Opportunity


The State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) supports the implementation of risk driven, capabilities-based state homeland security strategies to address capability targets set in urban area, state and regional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessments (THIRA). The capability targets are established during the THIRA process and assessed in the State Preparedness Report and inform of planning, organization, equipment, training and exercise needs to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to and recover from acts of terrorism and other catastrophic events.


To apply for federal funding opportunities, a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, as well as a current status in the System for Award Management (SAM) is required. It may take four weeks or more after submission for the registration to become active in SAM and an additional 24 hours for grants.gov to recognize the information. This can be done online at http://www.grants.gov/web/grants/register.html.

Be aware, beginning on April 27, 2018, ALL entities renewing or updating their SAM registration at www.SAM.gov are required to submit an original signed, notarized letter confirming the authorized Entity Administrator associated with the DUNS number before the registration is activated.
