Domestic Security Overview

The Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) is the State Administrative Agency (SAA) for the Department of Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP). HSGP is comprised of three grant programs. The Domestic Security Unit is responsible for the administration of these programs for the State of Florida.

Homeland Security Grant

  • State Homeland Security Grant Program (SHGP): The SHGP assists state, tribal, territorial, and local preparedness activities that address high-priority preparedness gaps across all core capabilities that support terrorism preparedness.
  • Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI): The UASI program assists high-threat, high-density Urban Areas in efforts to build, sustain, and deliver the capabilities necessary to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism.
  • Operation Stonegarden (OPSG): The OPSG Program supports enhanced cooperation and coordination between Customs and Border Protection, United States Border Patrol, and Federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement agencies. The OPSG Program provides funding to support joint efforts to secure the United States’ borders along routes of ingress from international borders to include travel corridors in states bordering Mexico and Canada, as well as states and territories with international water borders.

Other Grant Programs Managed by Domestic Security Unit

In an effort to make processes more streamlined and establish single points of contact, FDEM consolidated the administration of these grant programs under Domestic Security.

  • Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) - This is Federal pass-through funds to help support County Emergency Management Programs.  To ensure that the 67 counties within the State of Florida have the capabilities to prevent, prepare, protect, respond and recover from disasters.  The Regional Collaboration activities in each of the 67 counties support maintain and sustain the local Emergency Management programs. Funds are governed by the Department of Homeland Security Notice of Funding Opportunity, Emergency Management Performance Grant Program funding guidelines and County Funding Agreement.

  • Emergency Management Preparedness and Assistance (EMPA) - In order to provide funds for emergency management, preparedness, and assistance, an annual surcharge of $2 per policy shall be imposed on every homeowners, mobile home owners, tenant homeowners, and condominium unit owners policy, and an annual $4 surcharge shall be imposed on every commercial fire, commercial multiple peril, and business owner’s property insurance policy, issued or renewed on or after May 1, 1993. Chapter 252.372 Florida Statutes. Funds are governed by County Funding Agreement, Rule Chapter 27P-19 and Chapter 252, Florida Statutes.

  • Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC) Program - Pursuant to the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act, a Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is responsible for preparing a regional hazardous materials emergency response plan, serves as a repository for regional hazardous materials information, and performs outreach functions to increase hazardous materials awareness. LEPC membership consists of local professionals representing occupational categories such as firefighting, law enforcement, emergency management, health, and/or transportation.

  • Hazard Material Emergency Preparedness (HMEP) – To protect against the risk to life, property, and the environment that are inherent in the transportation of hazardous material in intrastate, interstate, and foreign commerce (Title 49 U.S.C. § 5101).  The HMEP grant supports the emergency preparedness and response efforts of States, federally recognized Native American tribes, and Territories that deal with hazardous materials emergencies, specifically those involving transportation.

  • Hazard Analysis (HA) - Hazards Analysis are required by the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act for facilities that contain Extremely Hazardous Substance in amount equal to or greater than the Threshold Planning Quantity. These are the chemicals that have been determined to be commonly present in our communities and that have the potential to create off-site injuries or fatalities if released.

Important Information

  • Florida Accountability Contract System: (FACTS): Information about sub-grant agreements for active State Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) years may be accessed on the Florida Accountability Contract Tracking System (FACTS) search page: https://facts.fldfs.com/Search/ContractSearch.aspx. No login is required. The most efficient way to locate the domestic security unit agreements is to search using only the field of ‘Agency Assigned Contract ID’. 
  • All of the FDEM DHS sub-grants are assigned the prefix of DEM- followed by the complete contract number including all dashes, with no spaces. Entering only a limited number of fields will return larger search results. For example, searching DEM-15-DS-L5-09 will produce a search result for a district.  Adding the next field DEM-16-DS-L5-09-21 will produce results by county.  Searching the entire prefix and agreement number such as DEM-16-DS-L5-09-21-23-369 will produce one specific agreement. Other information available at this site include start & end dates, payments logged by the comptroller and pdf copies of executed legal documents. For a ‘List of Open Agreement Numbers by Recipient Agency’ for the active HSGP years, please visit the link posted at the bottom of this page under the ‘Resource Information’ header. 
  • MONITORING: Monitoring and evaluation of sub-recipients will be on an annual and as needed basis by FDEM, both programmatically and financially, to ensure that the project goals, objectives, performance requirements, timelines, milestone completion, budgets, and other related program criteria are met.
