State and Local Homeland Security National Training Program

The Homeland Security National Training Program (HSNTP), consisting of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC) and Continuing Training Grants (CTG) program plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System (NPS) by supporting the building, sustainment, and
delivery of core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness Goal (NPG) of a secure and resilient Nation.

(http://www.fema.gov/national-preparedness-goal)

The objective of the HSNTP is to support nationwide training initiatives and further the mission of FEMA.

In order to achieve the intended objective of the HSNTP, all training developed with HSNTP funds must support FEMA?s all-hazards mission and reflect the following key priority areas: use of existing training mechanisms; linking training to exercise activities; incorporating the core capabilities identified in the National Preparedness Goal and the National Preparedness System components; and utilizing an adult learning and national delivery approach whereby curriculum is delivered via an integrated, collaborative approach.



Where possible, efforts will be made in the development and delivery of training programs to support the implementation of risk driven, capabilities-based State Homeland Security Strategies to address capability targets set in urban area, state, and regional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessments (THIRAs).

The capability levels assessed in the State Preparedness Report (SPR) should be used to inform planning, organization, equipment, training, and exercise needs to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism and other catastrophic events.

Agency - Department of Homeland Security

The Department of Homeland Security has three primary missions: Prevent terrorist attacks within the United States, reduce America's vulnerability to terrorism and minimize the damage from potential attacks and natural disasters.
