The Homeland Security Preparedness Technical Assistance Program (HSPTAP) provides financial assistance to professional non-profit organizations in activities to improve and/or build state, local, tribal and territorial (SLTT) capabilities to prevent, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate
major events, including threats or acts of terrorism.
The overarching programmatic goal focuses on building state and local capabilities through various means and methods, each one aimed at achieving the National Preparedness Goal and furthering our collective efforts to remain a safe and secure nation.
Specific HSPTAP program activities anticipated for achieving this goal include, but will not be limited to:
developing and disseminating written products; facilitating calls, meetings, or discussions; providing and organizing seminars, training and workshops for key homeland security and emergency preparedness SLTT stakeholders nationwide (e.g., state emergency management directors, state homeland security advisors, and other professional organizations in the public and private sectors, etc.) to share information, knowledge, experiences, and practices relating to current and emerging homeland security, emergency management and public safety issues and efforts.
