The audit objective was to determine whether Alaska used Homeland Security Grant Program funds in accordance with the law, program guidance, and state homeland security plans and other applicable plans. We also addressed the extent to which funds awarded enhanced the ability of grantees to prevent, prepare for, protect against, and respond to natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other manmade disasters. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) awarded Alaska approximately $14.6 million in State Homeland Security Program grants during fiscal years 2010 through 2012.
