Anti-terrorism grants awarded to Oregon counties total some $1.4M


SALEM, Ore.-- Grants totaling $1.4 million dollars have been awarded to 21 Oregon counties to provide resources and capabilities for responding to terrorism through the State Homeland Security Program (SHSP), according to the director of the Oregon Military Department's Office of Emergency Management.

The SHSP is provided through FEMA and focuses on responders including emergency management, law enforcement, fire protection, public health, 911 programs, and others.

A priority for the Oregon Office of Emergency Management is the regional and collaborative enhancement of planning, organization, equipment, training and exercise capabilities.

"The grant money will help equip communities throughout Oregon with the equipment and resources needed for terrorism and all hazard emergencies," said Martin Plotner, Director, Oregon Military Department's, Office of Emergency Management. 

In June, grant application workshops were held throughout the state explaining the program and what projects and programs qualified for these funds.   A peer review group of state, local and county emergency professionals screened and evaluated all grant submissions.  Those counties who received approval have been notified.

Below is the complete list of conditional awards that were approved.
