    Louisiana Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP)


    The purpose of HSGP is to support state and local efforts to prevent terrorism and other catastrophic events and to prepare the Nation for the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to the security of the United States. HSGP provides funding to implement investments that build, sustain, and deliver the 32 core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal) of a secure and resilient Nation. The building, sustainment, and delivery of these core capabilities are not exclusive to any single level of government, organization, or community, but rather, require the combined effort of the whole community, inclusive of children, individuals with disabilities and others with access and functional needs, diverse communities, and people with limited English proficiency. HSGP supports the core capabilities across the five mission areas of Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery based on allowable costs. HSGP supports the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review Mission to Strengthen National Preparedness and Resilience.

    The OPSG Program supports enhanced cooperation and coordination among Customs and Border Protection (CBP), United States Border Patrol (USBP), and Federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement agencies. The OPSG Program provides funding to support joint efforts to secure the United States borders along routes of ingress from international borders to include travel corridors in states bordering Mexico and Canada, as well as states and territories with international water borders.

    Examples of eligible OPSG activities:
    • Certain Equipment Purchases;
    • Operational Overtime;
    • Part Time Personnel;
    • Travel Per Diem and Lodging;
    • Vehicle and Equipment Rentals;
    • Vehicle and Equipment Maintenance;
    • Fuel Cost and/or Mileage Reimbursement;
    • Activate Reserve State local, Tribal, and Territorial law enforcement personnel;
    • Backfill cost for personnel supporting operational activities; and

    Additional Information

    As part of the application process, each eligible local unit of government at the county or Federally-recognized tribal government level must develop their Operations Order in coordination with state and Federal law enforcement agencies, to include, but not limited to CBP/USBP. Operations Orders that are developed at the county level should be inclusive of city, county, tribal, and other local law enforcement agencies that are eligible to participate in OPSG operational activities. The Operations Order should address this in the Executive Summary. Operations Order details should include the names of the agencies, points of contact, and individual funding requests. All applications must be developed in collaboration with the local USBP sector office, the SAA and the local unit of government. Requests for funding must be based on risk and the operational enforcement support requirements of its corresponding USBP Sector. The sector office will then forward the application to the SAA for final review before submission to DHS/FEMA.
