Report: FY2006 Appropriations for State and Local Homeland Security

On February 14, 2005, the Library of Congress, Congressional Research Service, provided the Congress with a five-page report entitled FY 2006 Appropriations for State and Local Homeland Security.

Following are excerpts from the linked report:

The report is "...a preliminary overview of the Administration's FY2006 budget request for selected programs of homeland security assistance to state and local first responders: firefighters, emergency medical personnel, law enforcement, etc."

"The report does not cover general assistance grant programs such as the Local Law Enforcement Block Grant, the Byrne Grant, the Byrne Memorial Formula Grant, and Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS)."

"The report covers only programs intended to help state and local recipients enhance their preparedness for terrorist attacks and that are administered by the Office for Domestic Preparedness, within the Office for State and Local Government Coordination and Preparedness."
