    The SHSP assists state, Tribal and local preparedness activities that address high-priority preparedness gaps across all core capabilities where a nexus to terrorism exists. All supported investments are based on capability targets and gaps identified during the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) process, and assessed in the State Preparedness Report (SPR).
    The National Preparedness System is the instrument the Nation employs to build, sustain, and deliver core capabilities in order to achieve the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal) of a secure and resilient Nation. Complex and far-reaching threats and hazards require a collaborative and whole community approach to national preparedness that engages individuals, families, communities, private and nonprofit sectors, faith-based organizations, and all levels of government. The guidance, programs, processes, and systems that support each component of the National Preparedness System allows for the integration of preparedness efforts that build, sustain, and deliver core capabilities and achieve the desired outcomes identified in the Goal.
    In developing applications for the FY 2016 HSGP, recipients are encouraged to consider national areas for improvement identified in the 2015 NPR, which include the following core capabilities: 
    • Cybersecurity;
    • Infrastructure Systems;
    • Access Control and Identity Verification;
    • Economic Recovery;
    • Housing; and
    • Long-term Vulnerability Reduction 
    In addition, the Department of Homeland Security expects grantees to prioritize grant funding to address gaps identified through the annual SPR in achieving capability targets set through the annual THIRA. These assessments identify the jurisdictions capability targets and current ability to meet those targets. Grantees should prioritize grant funds to increase capability for high-priority core capabilities with low capability levels.

    Additional Information

    The FY 2016 HSGP supports investments that improve the ability of jurisdictions nationwide to:  
    • Prevent a threatened or an actual act of terrorism;
    • Protect our citizens, residents, visitors, and assets against the greatest threats and hazards;
    • Mitigate the loss of life and property by lessening the impact of future catastrophic events;
    • Respond quickly to save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs in the aftermath of a catastrophic incident; and/or
    • Recover through a focus on the timely restoration, strengthening, accessibility and revitalization of infrastructure, housing, and a sustainable economy, as well as the health, social, cultural, historic, and environmental fabric of communities affected by a catastrophic incident; and do so in a manner that engages the whole community while ensuring the protection of civil rights. 
    The core capabilities contained in the Goal are highly interdependent and require the use of existing preparedness networks and activities, to improve planning, training and exercises of programs, to promote innovation, and to ensure that the appropriate administrative, finance, and logistics systems are in place.
