www.dhs.gov/dhspublic/interapp/editorial/editorial_0355.xml.The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced a new web page for information on grant opportunities from the department and elsewhere in the federal government, including public health preparedness grants under Health and Human Services, counter-terrorism grants under the Department of Justice, and water-security grants from the Environmental Protection Agency.

www.fema.gov/compendium.DHS has recently launched a searchable web-based “compendium of federal terrorism training”, a database originally developed by the army in 1998 and significantly updated and redesigned by FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute. This new resource provides state and local officials with a single location from which they can easily find information on terrorism training available from federal departments and agencies. Users can query specific subject areas, departments, or agencies and print out customized lists of available training.
