Grant Description
Grants to Rhode Island state and local agencies, and tribes to address issues related to homeland security. Funding is intended to respond to organizational needs associated with planning, equipment, training, and exercise in order to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from, acts of terrorism and other catastrophic events.

The following are the six priority areas for FY 2023, along with the minimum corresponding percentage of SHSP and UASI funds that each recipient will be required to allocate:

  1. Enhancing the protection of soft targets/crowded places – 3%
  2. Enhancing information and intelligence sharing and analysis – 3%
  3. Combating domestic violent extremism – 3%
  4. Enhancing cybersecurity – no minimum percent
  5. Enhancing community preparedness and resilience – 3%
  6. Enhancing election security – 3% 

In FY 2023, there are three components of the HSGP:

  1. State Homeland Security Program (SHSP): SHSP assists state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) efforts to build, sustain, and deliver the capabilities necessary to prevent, prepare for, protect against, and respond to acts of terrorism.
  2. Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI): UASI assists high-threat, high-density Urban Area efforts to build, sustain, and deliver the capabilities necessary to prevent, prepare for, protect against, and respond to acts of terrorism.
  3. Operation Stonegarden (OPSG): OPSG supports enhanced cooperation and coordination among Customs and Border Protection (CBP), United States Border Patrol (USBP), and federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement agencies to improve overall border security. 

The following are enduring needs that help recipients implement a comprehensive approach to securing communities:

  • Effective planning;
  • Training and awareness campaigns;
  • Equipment and capital projects; and
  • Exercises.
