FEMA Awards Terrorist Attack Preparedness Funding

The recipients will receive funding specifically to develop and implement effective, sustainable, and regional approaches for enhancing preparedness for complex coordinated terrorist attacks, approaches that include these components: identifying capability gaps, developing and/or updating plans, training to implement plans and procedures, and conducting exercises to validate capabilities.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced funding awards July 13 for the FY2016 Program to Prepare Communities for Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attacks, known as the CCTA Program. It will provide $35.94 million to help recipients improve their ability to prepare for, prevent, and respond to complex coordinated terrorist attacks in collaboration with the whole community.

Terrorist incidents in London, Boston, and San Bernardino, Calif., highlight an emerging threat known as complex coordinated terrorist attacks, according to the agency. "Attacks we have seen around the world have shown us the importance of continuing to build strong, resilient, and prepared communities," said FEMA Administrator Brock Long. "These grants will serve as a catalyst to support communities across the country to enhance resilience and continue to build capacity at the local level."
