DHS Announces $141M in Port Security Grants

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced $141,969,967.61 in the fifth round of awards under the Port Security Grant Program (PSGP). The FY 2005 PSGP fortifies security at our nation’s critical ports and maritime facilities. PSGP funds address key national priorities by helping to protect ports against small craft and underwater attacks and vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices. The program also funds measures to enhance explosive detection capabilities aboard passenger vessels and associated facilities. “These grants provide another layer of security to help protect ports from terrorism, safeguard nearby communities and ensure the uninterrupted flow of global commerce,” said Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. Recipients were selected through a competitive peer review process using a new risk-based formula weighing threat, vulnerability and consequence. Consequence considers risks to people, the economy, and national security. Vulnerability involves factors such as distance from open water, number of port calls, and presence of tankers. Threat includes credible threats and incidents and vessels of interest information. The risk formula was developed by subject matter experts who have devoted much of their careers to maritime/port security. In order to receive funding, eligible port terminals must have submitted an application that met grant guidelines
