State Homeland Security Program (SHSP)

A core mission of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is to enhance the ability of State, local and tribal governments to prepare, prevent, respond to and recover from terrorist attacks and other disasters. The SHSP program assists state, tribal, and local preparedness activities that address high-priority preparedness gaps across all core capabilities and mission areas where a nexus to terrorism exists. The program supports the implementation of risk driver, capabilities-based approaches 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 the State Preparedness Report (SPR) and inform planning, organization, equipment, training and exercise needs to prevent, protect against, mitigate, and respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism and other catastrophic events.
