Apply for Homeland Security grant funding by Feb. 14

Applications for Homeland Security grant funding are being accepted until Feb. 14 at 5 p.m. CT via the South Dakota Department of Public Safety Electronic Grant Management System. 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 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 systems are not allowable at this time; grants will focus on basic security measures, such as access control, and funding is limited.

Awards are competitive and local awards will be based on recommendations of regional review committees. Funding for projects will become available on or about Sept. 1, 2020. Award agreements will be generated after funding becomes available; projects cannot start before the award date.

Questions? Find more information on the South Dakota Department of Public Safety website or call the South Dakota Office of Homeland Security at 605-773-3450.
