Application Period Now Open for State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program

apply to bolster cybersecurity measures

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced the establishment of the State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program, made possible by funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. With $185 million available for fiscal year 2022, the program provides opportunities for state, local, and territorial (SLT) governments to mitigate risks of cyberattacks against their information systems and delivery of essential emergency services. SLT governments can use this funding to implement more resilient cybersecurity measures to protect their communities.

The Department of Homeland Security released the notice of funding opportunity application period on Sept. 16, 2022, and will remain open until Nov. 15, 2022. Applicants may propose to use the funding for new or existing cybersecurity programs.
