Kentucky Homeland Security Projects Draw Funding

Oct 7, 2014

Federal grants totaling more than $2.8 million have been announced for Kentucky homeland security programs projects.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security funds will be used for training programs, citizen preparedness and awareness initiatives, and essential communication, critical infrastructure and first-responder equipment.

Governor Steve Beshear said in a news release the grants will help first responders do their work and keep the state prepared.

The funds will be used for 103 projects across Kentucky.

The Kentucky Supreme Court has declined to hear a challenge to a ruling that allows a reference to "Almighty God" in the state homeland security law.
