The Department of Transportation (DOT) has issued a Broad Agency Announcement discussing the Port Security Grant Program.

Eligible parties consist of critical national seaports and terminals. Critical national seaports or terminals, for purposes of this program, consist of the following: (a) the 13 strategic ports as designated by MARAD; (b) the controlled ports as designated by the U.S. Coast Guard; (c) nationally important economic ports responsible for a large volume of cargo movement or for movement of products that are vital to U.S. economic interests as required for national security; and (d) ports or terminals responsible for movement of a high volume of passengers.
