HRMMRS Receives Two FY17 State Homeland Security Grants

On September 19, 2016 Governor Terry McAuliffe announced that $5.7 million in federal funds will be awarded for 99 projects to enhance emergency preparedness and security throughout the Commonwealth. 

Governor McAuliffe’s public safety and homeland security team initiated a stakeholder-driven process to determine how the grants would be allocated this year. 

"An inclusive grant process, where all stakeholders are involved, is the key to understanding the security needs of a community," said Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security, Brian Moran. "We will continue to build upon the foundation we have laid with these grants in our efforts to keep the citizens of our Commonwealth safe and secure."

Old Dominion University assisted with scoring the graded proposals, based on a benefit-cost ratio, as requested by the public safety stakeholders.

The HRMMRS submitted regional grant requests through the Hampton Roads Planning DIstrict Commission. Two HRMMRS projects received funding from this grant cycle. These projects are:

  • MCI and Mass Care Capability Sustainment: $59,500
  • CBRNE Pharmaceutical Stockpile – Nerve Agent Antidote and Antibiotics: $80,565
