Each state has different mechanisms for awarding funding to responder agencies and counties. Some states require prior requests for training funds, while in other states, you may request funds at any time. Contact your state’s Homeland Security Director for more information.

AHLS Instructors may apply to bring AHLS to their organizations. AHLS staff will help you through every step of the process. Learn more about hosting a course.
The Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) serves as the only source of federal funding to ensure regional and local health care systems are ready to respond to emergencies, minimizing the need to ask for state and federal resources. HPP “prepares the nation’s health care system to save lives during emergencies and disasters.”
