Urban Areas Security Initiative Grant

The UASI program is a federal grant to fund risk driven and capabilities-based planning, organization, equipment, training, and exercise needs of high-threat, high-density Urban Areas. The five-county RDPO region is one of approximately 100 Urban Areas across the country that may receive funding each year. UASI funds help to build on the capability targets identified during the THIRA process as well as the assessments of gaps identified by RDPO Work Groups and Committees. The UASI program assists in building an enhanced and sustainable capacity to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the threats and hazards faced by our region.
