    Summary

    The SHSP is a core assistance program that provides funds to build capabilities at the State, local, tribal, and territorial levels, to enhance our national resilience to absorb disruptions and rapidly recover from incidents both natural and man-made as well as to implement the goals and objectives included in State homeland security strategies and initiatives in their State Preparedness Report (SPR). 

    SHSP supports the implementation of risk driven, capabilities-based State Homeland Security Strategies to address capability targets set in Urban Area, State, and regional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessments (THIRAs). The capability levels are assessed in the State Preparedness Report (SPR) and inform planning, organization, equipment, training, and exercise needs to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism and other catastrophic events.

    In Georgia, the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS) is responsible for coordinating homeland security initiatives and various federal grants. Funds through SHSP are used to aid in the training of emergency first responders, the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment for combating and preventing terrorist acts and for planning, and exercise. Funds are also used for management, administration and the development of citizen corps projects at the local level.
