Grant Projects & Program Management

In support of the region’s Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI), COG provides financial and procurement management and subject matter expertise where requested in the administration of approximately 40 sub-grants from the State Administrative Agent of the District of Columbia Homeland Security and Emergency Management Administration (DC HSEMA) on behalf of the region.

In addition through the federal Securing the Cities Program, COG will be purchasing equipment to enhance the region’s ability to detect radiological materials. The five-year, $30 million program is funded through the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) via DC HSEMA.
