0 5 30 40 50 90 100 0 50 All 3 requirements are met 100 2019 Criteria Regional Criteria Risk - The project links to known/emerging risk with a nexus to terrorism. The project fits state, region, local, and tribal priorities and/or established
documented risk. Documentation is provided as appropriate. (e.g. THIRA, Risk Assessments, Emergency Operations Plan, etc.). The project addresses risk in terms of threat, vulnerability and consequence. Benefit - The project benefits the jurisdiction, region and state. The project benefits the community, region, staff and other stakeholders. Vetted Regionalism 1) The proposal identifies a capability gap, 2) the project addresses the gap, and 3) the project includes letters of concurrence from jurisdictions identified in scope. Y/N (All three must apply to achieve 100 points). 50 points may be given to projects not completely satisfying the #3 requirement if the project aligns with regional priorities. Resource Sharing - The project has a credible plan to share resources. The plan has documentation (e.g. MOUs, contracts, etc.) that demonstrates collaboration and/or agreement from multiple jurisdictions, and/or multiple regions, and/or multiple disciplines (e.g. fire, police, emergency medical services). 2019 Criteria
Non - Regional Criteria Scope - The proposal identifies specific jurisdiction(s), the impact to the jurisdiction(s) & how the interaction occurs. Capability Linkage - The project links to core capabilities and preparedness goals with a nexus to terrorism. Sustainment - Consider whether this project sustains or enhances a current project or if it is a new project. If the project is new, the proposal describes how any equipment, licenses, training and other features will be maintained and upgraded after the period of performance? If this is sustainment of a current project, the proposal describes the outcomes of the previous period(s) of performance and ongoing sustainment plan. Whole of Community - The project addresses for example Public-Private Partnerships, StateLocal Partnerships, access, and functional needs? Project Management - The proposal explains how the project will be managed; how contracts will be managed; how accountability to timelines and grant rules will be monitored and deficiencies corrected. A timeline is provided from grant award to completion. The proposal indicates if SHSP projects funded in the past three years were completed, and provides an explanation if the project was not completed. Performance Measurement Plan - The proposal identifies how the project's results will be evaluated and who will evaluate them? The proposal describes the overall results that the project is expected to accomplish in qualitative and/or quantitative terms. Some descriptions could include
performance measures, national standards, and core capabilities. Project Replication - Can the project be easily replicated beyond the initial scope or area of initial concern (e.g. training, planning or some other document asset that can be implemented elsewhere)? State Priorities CERT/CITIZEN CORPS Projects CAPPED at 10% or $250,000 whichever is greater from the approved competitive projects Ex. If in the original package $300,000 of CERT/CCP projects are above the cutline, the bottom projects totaling $50,000 will be removed. Minimum Project Amount - $10,000
Per project not applicant Projects with the same scope of work that are broken out to become smaller projects for cost benefit purposes will be eliminated The bottom 40% of lowest scoring projects will be eliminated prior to benefit-cost ranking.
