$97 million in port security grants available

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced that $97.5 million in port security grants are available for fiscal 2012.

The Port SecurityGrant Program (PSGP) provides funding for transportation infrastructure security activities to implement Area Maritime Transportation Security Plans and facility security plans at ports, marine facilities, and to state and local governments that provide port security services.

Seven port areas have been selected as Group I (highest risk), 48 port areas have been selected as Group II, and 35 port areas have been selected as Group III. Ports not identified in one of these groups will compete for funding identified for the “All Other Port Areas” group.
