DHS Extends Funding for Fusion Center Analytical Support
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently clarified the guidelines for state and local fusion center intelligence analysts under the Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP). These guidelines apply to FY 2006, 2007, and 2008.
Under current DHS guidelines, there is a two year limitation on using HSGP funds for intelligence analysts. The new guidelines extend the limitation to three years, allowing for an additional year to develop intelligence capability.
