Homeland SecurityTim Haithcoat

Tom Moore asked Tim H to help write proposals, especially St. Louis and Kansas City. There is now a separate initiative called “resource and asset inventory”. The state has fifteen “investments” they can put in for grants. Some for St. Louis and Kansas City. The Department of Homeland Security wants to see if state proposals are in sync. Overarching goals: regionalization, NIMS, NIP (infrastructure protection) have to appear in each investment. Detail of investments. Each has an inventory component, so that was split out as its own initiative. Explanation. Will send out draft document for committee for development. Submitting February 24. Question from Pam K if money stops at state agencies or if it comes down to locals. More explanation. Jeff F: previously states each got $40M. Now states are competing against each other. Inventory idea very high (#2) on funding priority. Lots more explanation. Discussion.
