ODP Mission

Effective March 1, 2003, the Homeland Security Act of 2002 transferred the Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP) to the Border and Transportation Security Directorate within the Department of Homeland Security, and assigns ODP with:

“The primary responsibility within the executive branch of Government to build and sustain the preparedness of the United States to reduce vulnerabilities, prevent, respond to and recover from acts of terrorism,”

Prior to transfer to DHS, ODP was part of Department of Justice


ODP’s Expanded Responsibilities

The Homeland Security Act assigns eight expanded responsibilities to ODP:

  • Incorporate the national strategy into planning guidance.
  • Support risk analysis and risk management activities.
  • Direct and supervise federal terrorism preparedness grant programs.
  • Coordinate preparedness efforts.
  • Provide training for federal, state and local agencies and international entities.
  • Coordinate and consolidate communications relating to homeland security.
  • Cooperate closely with FEMA.
  • Consolidate terrorism related elements of FEMA’s Office of National Preparedness.
