Federal Grants Guide (2021 Edition)

SIA Federal Grants Guide 2021 Edition

Each year, the federal government makes investments in critical capabilities to meet security requirements, which the security industry strives to provide. Of course, security companies can compete and win contracts or complete sales through the federal supply schedules for security products, but they can also benefit through federal grants, often awarded to states or municipalities that then spend that money on security requirements. The Security Industry Association (SIA) has compiled this list of key federal grant programs and related resources as a tool for SIA members and their customers. While this list is not exhaustive, it provides information on key federal funding programs that support the effective implementation of security solutions, including these programs that offer security grants:
