Grant Focus Areas

Homeland Security

Ensures the combined expertise and capabilities of Federal, State, territorial, tribal and local governments, and community-based and private organizations are utilized effectively across all hazards planning and response

Transportation Security

Enhances the security and preparedness of the Nation’s ports of entry and mass transportation systems to protect the

traveling public


Provides equipment, resources and training to enhance fire departments’ and community organizations’ ability to protect the public and their staff from fire related hazards and injuries

national preparedness goal npg
Presidential Policy Directive 8: National Preparedness (PPD-8), signed on March 30, 2011, describes the Nation’s approach to preparing for the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to the security of the United States

The objective of PPD-8 is to facilitate an integrated, all-of-Nation, risk informed, capabilities-based approach to preparedness.

Using the core capabilities, we achieve the NPG by:

Preventing, avoiding, or stopping a threatened or an actual act of terrorism

Protecting our citizens, residents, visitors, and assets against the greatest threats and hazards in a manner that allows our interests, aspirations, and way of life to thrive

Mitigating the loss of life and property by lessening the impact of future disasters

Responding quickly to save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs in the aftermath of a catastrophic incident

Recovering through a focus on the timely restoration, strengthening, and revitalization of infrastructure, housing, and a sustainable economy, as well as the health, social, cultural, historic, and environmental fabric of communities affected by a catastrophic incident

The core capabilities contained in the NPG are the distinct critical elements necessary for our success. They are highly interdependent and will require the use of existing preparedness networks and activities, improve training and exercise programs, promote innovation, and ensure that the administrative, finance, and logistics systems are in place to support these capabilities.
