U.S. Congressional Legislation: Homeland Security Grants

A bill (H.R. 5562) that would amend the use of homeland security grants has been approved by the House Homeland Security Committee. The bill must now come before the full House of Representatives for a vote.

Under the bill, the government could not require that grants issued under the Urban Area Security Initiative be used for specific purposes. Also, H.R. 5562 would require that the government study the costs of administering the grants to determine whether the grantees should be awarded a greater percentage of funds to be used for management and administration of the grant award.
