SHSP Grant

The State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) is a federal homeland security program that provides funds to build and sustain capabilities at the state and local levels. Activities implemented under SHSP must support terrorism preparedness by building or enhancing capabilities that relate to prevention, protection, mitigation, response and recovery.

OHSP utilizes a risk-based formula to distribute much of the available funding to New Jersey's four regions—UASI, Northwest, Shore, and Delaware River. 

Awardees must program 25% of the funds to support law enforcement counterterrorism activities.
