HOMELAND SECURITY GRANT PROGRAM RESOURCES
Listed below are items that will help you with completing your application:
Each year Kentucky is called on to compete with other states and urban areas to receive federal homeland security funding. KOHS provides the U.S. Department of Homeland Security with a comprehensive document that explains 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 award is granted.
The Commonwealth uses a competitive grant application for local agencies to submit proposed projects. When these applications are presented, a team of subject matter expert 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 proposed projects are presented to the Governor for a review and final award decisions.
