The Arizona Department of Homeland Security was established in 2006 by the Arizona State Legislature to support the mission of providing strategic direction and access to federal homeland security grant program resources that will further enable the stakeholders' collective goals to prevent, protect, mitigate, respond to and recover from terrorist attacks and other critical hazards that affect the safety, well-being and economic security of Arizona.
Gilbert M. Orrantia, Director
Based upon guidance being provided to us regarding COVID-19, the Arizona Department of Homeland Security will be operating under an alternate schedule through April 30, 2020. Accordingly, this may cause some delay in response times. Thank you for your patience as we continue to maintain services to our valued stakeholders.
The Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) application period is OPEN! Applications are due by 5:00pm Friday April 10, 2020.
Homeland security begins with hometown security. Everyday citizens can protect their neighbors and the communities they call home by recognizing and reporting suspicious activity. Across the country, we all play a role in keeping each other safe.
