  • Creating a cohesive planning framework that builds and implements preparedness initiatives which leverage Department of Homeland Security (DHS) resources, as well as other Federal, State, territorial, local, private sector, faith-based community, and tribal resources;
  • Management of all available preparedness funding sources (multiple Federal sources as well as State and local sources) to enhance effective utilization of and elimination of duplication of effort across all stakeholders and disciplines; and
  • Ensuring that the application for State Homeland Security (SHSP) and Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) funds align with the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) and work to fill capability shortfalls identified in the State Preparedness Report (SPR).
