District of Columbia’s Management of Homeland Security Grant Program Awards for Fiscal Years 2010 Through 2012

Executive Summary

HSGP guidance requires a state administrative agency to administer and manage grant funding awarded under the HSGP. According to the District of Columbia Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (DCHSEMA), in March 2007, it was designated as the state administrative agency for HSGP. As such, DC HSEMA is responsible for managing the SHSP and UASI grants in accordance with established Federal guidelines. DC HSEMA was allocated SHSP grant funds for the District of Columbia, as well as UASI grant funds for the National Capital Region (NCR). During fiscal years (FYs) 2010 through 2012, FEMA awarded the DC HSEMA SHSP and UASI grant funds totaling about $189 million. Figure 1 illustrates the UASI funding the NCR received and the SHSP funding the District of Columbia received over the 3 year period. UASI funding for the NCR averaged about $57 million per year during FYs 2010 through 2012, the period covered by our audit. The District of Columbia received its highest level of SHSP funding in FY 2010, but faced a decline of more than $7 million from FYs 2010 to 2012
