FY 2014 State Homeland Security Grant – Regional Stakeholder Grant Meetings
The Virginia Department of Emergency Management invites you to participate in a regional meeting for the FFY 2014 State Homeland Security Grant Program.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released the 2014 State Homeland Security Grant Program guidance. The 2014 Grant Stakeholder meetings will focus on sustainment and need to be addressed through this important grant program.

A meeting is scheduled in each of the seven VDEM regions late April and early May. We ask you to please attend the meeting in the region where you are located in order to better address the priorities in your jurisdiction. However, if you are currently working with localities from multiple regions, you are welcome to attend more than one meeting.

Each locality is encouraged to send two or three representatives for the different preparedness needs of the locality (CBRNE, Citizen Awareness/Preparedness, Law Enforcement Terrorism Prevention Activities, Information Sharing/Dissemination, and Mass Care, Critical Infrastructure Protection, Training and Exercises, and Community Preparedness, and Interoperability/Communications).
