On behalf of the UAWG Executive Committee (EC), we want to thank all of the applicants, the committee chairs, their members, and all other subject matter experts who assisted with the review of over 40 million dollars in proposals submitted for possible funding through the FY2018 UASI grant. The committees serve as a critical part of our process, particularly in helping us work towards standardized equipment, training and processes, including our regional concepts of operations.
The FY2018 UASI Final Allocation list has been posted on the Houston UASI website. You must be logged into the site to view the list. If you need assistance logging in, please let us know. Once you have logged into the site, go to “Regional Committees” at the top and drop down the menu to select the “Urban Area Working Group (UAWG)” folder. The final allocation list reflects the difficult reductions the EC had to make based on the amount allocated to the Houston Urban Area in the FY2018 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO).
If your budget was reduced, we will be sending you an email soon so that the revisions can be made.
We appreciate your ongoing commitment to the security of our region, and we look forward to working with you as we continue to implement our Regional Homeland Security Strategic Plan.
Alison Belcher & Mel Bartis
