DHS/FEMA uses the information to evaluate applicants' familiarity with the national preparedness architecture and identify how elements of this architecture have been incorporated into regional/state/local planning, operations, and investments.

HSGP is comprised of four separate grant programs: The State Homeland Security Program (SHPS), the Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI), the Metropolitan Medical Response Systems (MMRS), and the Citizen Corps Program (CCP). Together, these grants fund a range of preparedness activities, including planning, organization, equipment purchase, training, exercises, and management and administration costs.
