The audit objectives were to determine whether the State of Mississippi distributed and spent State Homeland Security Program grant funds (1) effectively and efficiently, and (2) in compliance with applicable Federal laws and regulations. We also addressed the extent to which grant funds enhanced the State’s ability to prevent, prepare for, protect against, and respond to natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other man-made disasters. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) awarded the State of Mississippi approximately $19.3 million in State Homeland Security Program grants during fiscal years 2008 through 2010.
