Homeland Security grant funding available

Applications for Homeland Security grant funding is available.


Public schools, along with state and local, public and private nonprofit agencies and non-public schools, are eligible to apply.


The deadline to apply for the grant is Monday, August 1. Funding will be available by January 2017.


Grants will focus on basic security measures, such as access control projects, such as keyless entry, video entry and Fire Marshal-compliant door locks, and funding is limited.




Funding will be awarded for one-time projects with a connection to a Homeland Security mission area, such as prevention or protection against terrorism threats. Surveillance camera systems are not allowable at this time.


Awards are competitive, and local awards will be based on recommendations of regional review committees.


More information is available on the South Dakota Department of Public Safety website:

Applicants are encouraged to call the South Dakota Office of Homeland Security at 605-773-3450 if technical assistance is needed.
