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.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/FEMA awards Homeland Security Grant Funds annually to the States. Maine allocates grant dollars to the sixteen counties and six metros. The identified subrecipients determine the homeland security funding priorities for the year. For more information, contact your County EMA Director.
