How to apply...
Application information may be found at www.dhs.gov.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
The awardees are selected by DHS officials based on the reviewers' evaluation, the applicant's essays, and the goal of attaining racial, gender, and geographical diversity among the recipients of awards. The number of awards depends on availability of funds.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
