Homeland Security Grants

MEMA administers Homeland Security Grants in Maine. Since 1999, more than $100 million has been distributed to enhance homeland security and all-hazard preparedness across the State.

Grant funds are administered with the assistance of a multi-jurisdictional, multi-disciplinary review team. Grant priorities have been established in concert with Maine's Homeland Security Strategy.

A grant application period is currently open through December 1, 2011 for Tribal, County and local jurisdictions.

Maine has established a competitive model to distribute funds based on the current strategy and priorities. Those priorities include all-hazard emergency planning including school emergency planning, interoperable communications, training and exercise, public education and awareness and National Incident Management System (NIMS) implementation.

Other Federal Grant Programs

The US Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency sponsor a number of public safety-related grant programs. You may visit their site for a complete list, or our summary page for an overview of those grants most applicable to Maine.
