On June 2, Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly announced the release of Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 Notices of Funding Opportunity for 10 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) preparedness grant programs totaling more than $1.6 billion. According to the press statement from DHS, the “grant programs provide funding to state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, as well as transportation authorities, nonprofit organizations, and the private sector, to improve the nation’s readiness in preventing, protecting against, responding to, recovering from and mitigating terrorist attacks, major disasters and other emergencies. The grants reflect the Department’s focus on funding for programs that address our nation’s immediate security needs and ensure public safety in our communities.”
