Friday, August 17, 2007
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a supplemental Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 grant guidance and application kits for three grant programs: the Port Security Grant Program (PSGP), Transit Security Grant Program (TSGP), and Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) Program. The supplemental announcement of $260 million is in addition to $567m awarded from the regular FY 2007 appropriations for these programs, totaling roughly $827m this fiscal year.

The U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act of 2007 (P.L. 110-28) provided an additional $110 million for the PSGP, $100 million for the TSGP, and $50 million for the EMPG. Eligible applicants must apply for FY 2007 supplemental funding online. Grant guidance and eligibility criteria for the supplemental funds are also available online. Although dollar amounts to some areas have been determined, all applicants must still submit completed applications no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Aug. 29, 2007. As required by Congress, the department anticipates awarding supplemental grants by Sept. 30, 2007.
