Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP)

Maine State SealMEMA 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.
