The audit objectives were to determine whether Maine used State Homeland Security Program grant funds in accordance with the law, program guidance, state homeland security strategies, and other applicable plans. We also addressed the extent to which grant funds enhanced the ability of grantees to prevent, prepare for, protect against, and respond to natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other manmade disasters. We reviewed approximately $14.5 million in State Homeland Security Program grants awarded to Maine during fiscal years 2010 through 2012. Maine did not receive Urban Areas Security Initiative grant funds.
