This includes: counterterrorism efforts, protection of civilians and critical infrastructure and assets, and emergency preparedness and response.
  6. 6. NATIONAL STRATEGY Priorities and funding are based on the National Strategy for Homeland Security re-issued in 2007 FULL REPORT IS AVAILABLE AT:
  7. 7. HOMELAND SECURITY TRENDS Funding For Homeland Security Grew Substantially For Much Of The Past Decade But Has Recently Declined • Funding for homeland security has dropped somewhat from its 2009 peak of $76 billion, in inflation-adjusted terms; funding for 2012 totaled $68 billion. • Pre-9/11, the U.S. spent $12.1 billion • The allocation of homeland security funding among the various federal agencies has remained relatively constant since 2005.

Prevent and disrupt terrorist attacks; (48%) Protect the American people, critical infrastructure, and key resources; (43%) Respond to and recover from incidents; (9%)and Continue to strengthen the homeland security foundation.

  10. 10. HOMELAND SECURITY ALLOCATIONS Although every Cabinet-level department receives homeland security funding, approximately 90 percent of the requested funding would be allocated to four departments: • Department of Homeland Security (DHS— $35.5 billion, or 52 percent of the total homeland security request); • Department of Defense (DoD—$17.9 billion, or 26 percent); • Department of Health and Human Services (HHS—$4.1 billion or 6 percent); and • Department of Justice (DOJ—$4.0 billion or 6 percent).

  17. 17. DHS’ CREATION DHS was created over a decade ago and combined 22 agencies with varying functions and missions. Source: Government Executive, March 2003
  19. 19. DHS AGENCIES Funding for DHS spans all six homeland security missions, but the majority of that funding is for border and transportation security, accounting for almost 70 percent of the department. Four DHS agencies—Customs and Border Protection, the Transportation Security Administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Coast Guard—are designated to receive almost all of the funds in support of that mission.
  20. 20. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE Because of laws, policies, and custom, the military’s involvement in domestic operations and law enforcement is limited.  DoD and the military services tend to focus their homeland security efforts on protecting infrastructure that is essential for U.S. military operations from terrorist attack and preparing to help civil authorities if asked.  Almost 80 percent of DoD’s homeland security funding would be for either military personnel or operation and maintenance.

  21. 21. HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES HHS receives much less homeland security funding than DHS and DoD. However, funding for HHS supports the missions of:  defending against catastrophic threats (mainly developing medical countermeasures against biological, chemical, or radiological weapons)  emergency preparedness and response (mainly providing medical supplies, equipment, and personnel in order to respond to a catastrophic health event).
