Homeland Security Grant Opportunities

MEMA administers Homeland Security Grants in Maine. Since 1999, more than $100 million has been distributed to enhance homeland security and all-hazard preparedness across the State.

Grant priorities have been established in concert with Maine's Homeland Security Strategy.

DHS/FEMA awards Homeland Security Grant Funds annually to the States. Maine allocates grant dollars to the sixteen Counties. The County EMA offices then convene a process with their towns to determine the funding priorities for the year. For more information, contact your County EMA Director.

Other Federal Grant Programs

The US Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency sponsor a number of public safety-related grant programs (see link below).
