Grant Program

Each year Kentucky is called on to compete with other states and urban areas to receive federal homeland security funding. The state provides the U.S. Department of Homeland Security with a comprehensive document that entails how homeland security funds will be used in Kentucky.

Following a comprehensive review at the federal level that takes into consideration the elements of risk and the effectiveness of the state’s programs, a specified reward is granted.

The Commonwealth uses a competitive grant application for state and local agencies to submit proposals. When these proposals are presented, a team of peer reviewers from across the state reviews the grant application in accordance with the state’s homeland security strategy and enhancement plan. The results are then submitted to a KOHS Executive Review Panel. From there, the grants are presented to the governor for a review and final award decisions.
