Consistent with the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Act of 2007, states are required to ensure that at least 25 percent (30 percent with FY 22 funds) of SHSP appropriated funds are dedicated towards law enforcement terrorism prevention-oriented planning, organization, training, exercise, and equipment activities, including those activities which support the development and operation of fusion centers.
The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (ODEMHS) is accepting applications for Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program grants from September 1st to 30th of 2023. ODEMHS is anticipating awarding up to $50,000 which will be distributed through a competitive funding opportunity for CERT disaster preparedness, training, and education needs of Oklahomans. Funding amounts are awarded by ODEMHS. The maximum amount per award will be $10,000 for planning, organization, equipment, training, exercise. Interested parties may apply for funding for a CERT Program.
Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP)
This grant provides funding support for target hardening and other physical security enhancements and activities to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of terrorist attack. The intent is to integrate nonprofit preparedness activities with broader state and local preparedness efforts. It is also designed to promote coordination and collaboration in emergency preparedness activities among public and private community representatives, as well as state and local government agencies.
The FY 2023 Nonprofit Security Grant Program application is open. Please submit your investment justification template, mission statement on letterhead, and physical security assessment to email@example.com. The application period will run from February 27, 2023 to April 28, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. If you have any questions about completing the application please contact Christina Daron at 405-425-7591 or Hannah Kopisch at 405-425-7455.
First, determine whether your organization was previously assigned a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) Number when applying for federal assistance; the numeric DUNS system was phased out of use on April 4, 2022 and replaced by the alphanumeric Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) system.
- If your organization was previously assigned a DUNS Number, it has been replaced by a new UEI value. Login to sam.gov to check your new UEI.
- If your organization has not previously applied for federal assistance, move on to Step 2 below; you will automatically be assigned a UEI when registering in sam.gov.
Then, obtain an Employer Identification Number (EIN) and register in the System for Award Management at sam.gov; your organization will be assigned a Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) once registered.
Applications submitted without UEI numbers will be considered incomplete and determined ineligible.
Second, write your mission statement on official letterhead, if available, specifying the “who, what and why” of your organization (FEMA NOFO requirement). This must be submitted to the SAA (Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security).
Third, conduct and/or review your Vulnerability Assessment to assist in identifying the threats, vulnerabilities and consequences of terrorist attacks at your facility and any supporting documents (e.g., police or insurance reports) (FEMA NOFO requirement). Sub applicants should use this information to complete FEMA’s required Investment Justification. The Vulnerability Assessment must be submitted to the SAA (Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security).
Fourth, complete the Investment Justification (FEMA NOFO requirement). An investment justification can only be for a single physical address for your facility at the time of application; any equipment requested in this Investment Justification should be directly linked to the threats, vulnerabilities, and potential consequences of events as described in the Vulnerability Assessment mentioned above.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact Christina Daron at 405-425-7591 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program
Our nation faces unprecedented cybersecurity risks, including increasingly sophisticated adversaries, widespread vulnerabilities in commonly used hardware and software, and broad dependencies on networked technologies for the day-to-day operation of critical infrastructure. Cyber risk management is further complicated by the ability of malicious actors to operate remotely, linkages between cyber and physical systems, and the difficulty of reducing vulnerabilities. The potential consequences of cyber incidents threaten national security. Strengthening cybersecurity practices and resilience of state, local, and territorial (SLT) governments is an important homeland security mission and the primary focus of the State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program (SLCGP). Through funding from Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), the SLCGP enables DHS to make targeted cybersecurity investments in SLT government agencies, thus improving the security of critical infrastructure and improving the resilience of the services 4 FY 2022 SLCGP NOFO Back to the Top SLT governments provide their community.
State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program Applications Open July 15, 2023
Please review the SLCGP one page application announcement prior to completing your application. Applications must be tied to the State Cyber Plan which is laid out in the announcement. Submit applications to email@example.com.
