Schools eligible to apply for Homeland Security grant funding

Applications for Homeland Security grant funding are being accepted until July 31, 2015.

State and local, public and private nonprofit agencies, including public and non-public schools, are eligible to apply. Funding will be awarded for one-time projects that have a connection to a Homeland Security mission area such as prevention or protection against terrorism threats. In particular, schools may be interested in access control projects such as: keyless entry, video entry and Fire Marshal-compliant door locks. Surveillance camera projects for schools are not allowable at this time; grants will focus on basic security measures, such as access control. Funding is limited.

Awards are competitive, and local awards will be based on recommendations of regional review committees. Instructions about the application and award process as well as a non-exclusive list of allowable and unallowable costs are available at http://dps.sd.gov/homeland_security/documents/ApplicationInstructions.pdf.

PowerPoint instructions are available at http://dps.sd.gov/homeland_security/documents/EDGARPresentationfor2015HomelandSecurityGrantApplications.pdf.

The link to the application system, Electronic Database for Grant Application & Reporting (EDGAR), is https://sddps.intelligrants.com/.

Funding will be available by January 2016. The project period end date will be determined by the nature of the project. Applicants can call their county emergency manager or the South Dakota Office of Homeland Security at (605) 773-3450 for technical assistance.
