Funding Opportunities

The Vermont Homeland Security Unit administers the Homeland Security Grant Program for the State of Vermont. Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The State of Vermont designated the Vermont Department of Public Safety as the State Administrative Agency (SAA), with responsibilities pertaining to the Homeland Security Grants Directorate.  Additionally, the Vermont Homeland Security Unit assumes primary responsibility to ensure emergency responders are adequately prepared to respond to acts of terrorism. This preparation not only increases Vermont’s emergency responders ability to respond to acts of terror, but other incidents as well, including natural disasters.
