    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 targets are established during the THIRA process, and 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.

    Program Priorities:

    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. The purpose of the HSGP is to prevent terrorism and to prepare the Nation for the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to the security of the United States; therefore, HSGP funded investments must have a terrorism-nexus.

    To evaluate National progress in building, sustaining, and delivering the core capabilities outlined in the Goal, FEMA annually publishes the National Preparedness Report (NPR). Looking across all 31 core capabilities outlined in the Goal, the NPR provides a National perspective on critical preparedness trends for whole community partners to use to inform program priorities, allocate resources, and communicate with stakeholders about issues of shared concern.

    Grantees are expected to consider National areas for improvement identified in the 2013 National Preparedness Report, which include cybersecurity, recovery-focused core capabilities, the integration of individuals with access and functional needs, enhancing the resilience of infrastructure systems, and maturing the role of public-private partnerships. Addressing these areas for improvement will enhance preparedness Nation-wide.

    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.
