The purpose of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 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. The FY 2016 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.

The FY 2016 HSGP supports core capabilities across the five mission areas of Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery based on allowable costs. The HSGP supports the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review Mission to Strengthen National Preparedness and Resilience and build the core capabilities in support of the National Preparedness Goal and preparedness doctrine articulated in Presidential Policy Directive 8: National Preparedness. HSGP is comprised of three grant programs: State Homeland Security Program (SHSP)Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)Operation Stonegarden (OPSG)Together, these grant programs fund a range of activities, including planning, organization, equipment purchase, training, exercises, and management and administration across all core capabilities and mission areas.

All three programs are based on risk-driven, capabilities-based strategic plans that outline high-priority needs relating to terrorism preparedness. For these plans to be effective, government officials and elected leaders, working with the whole community, must consider how to sustain current capability levels, while also addressing potential gaps.
