Call for Projects – Information
The 2015 Homeland Security Public Safety Stakeholder’s Grant Workshops are being held statewide from April 19 – 28, 2016 (seven regional meetings). The importance of these workshops is to promote coordination across the various disciplines and entities that are eligible to apply for SHSP funds along with a brief overview of other possible funding opportunities.
These workshops provide an opportunity for each region to possibly leverage additional funding to support critical security efforts. By working together, homeland security stakeholders can submit high-quality SHSP projects that will close the most critical preparedness gaps that are consistent with the commonwealth’s risk. Key stakeholders and groups identified opportunities for collaboration and developed projects that may benefit the security of their communities.
1. Provide stakeholders with a briefing on the Public Safety Stakeholder event held March 16th in Richmond.
2. Provide stakeholders with a briefing on the SHSP grant process and project scoring methodology.
3. Gathered input to identify security priorities and develop regional/collaborative projects to reduce risks.
4. Provide stakeholders information on Mitigation Grants, Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness (HMEP) Grants, and other funding sources.
5. Provide technical assistance to potential grant applicants to enhance the opportunity for funding.
Below are the meeting materials and templates needed to submit project information, including links to follow for submission. As we move forward, there will be more information posted to this section of the website.

Peer reviewers will independently review and score projects online from a remote location at their convenience July 6 – 22, 2016. The review process for FY 2015 is expected to take 10-15 hours to complete.
