Grant Description
Grants to Alaska local and tribal governments to prepare for and prevent disasters, catastrophic events, and terrorist attacks. Funding is intended to increase security through the acquisition of equipment, planning, training, exercises, and personnel activities. The goal of the program is to address needs related to preventing acts of terrorism and other catastrophic events.

The SHSP is a reimbursable, federally funded pass-through grant program to assist local and tribal all-hazard preparedness activities (planning, equipment, training, and exercise) that address identified gaps or capability targets where a connection to terrorism exists.

The State of Alaska directs that the 2023 SHSP work toward closing gaps and meeting capability targets identified from a jurisdiction’s Alaska Assessment or exercise/event after-action reports (AARs). By addressing these needs, the State ensures projects are measurable and aligned to Alaska’s Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR) and Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA).
