The Homeland Security Grants Section enhances security by managing and administering grant programs that increase the capability and capacity of local, tribal and state government, first responders, and the citizens of North Dakota. The grant programs provide the necessary funding to local units of government and first responders to prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from catastrophic incidents. The Homeland Security Section issues sub grants providing funding for planning, training, exercising, and equipment.

The State Homeland Security Program has entered into a cooperative agreement with Cass, Burleigh, Ward Counties and the City of Grand Forks to initiate a statewide comprehensive regional response program. The program places personnel and resources into four geographic regions to provide the mechanism for a coordinated response to a chemical, biological radiological, nuclear or explosive incident.

The Homeland Security Section also manages and administers the Training and Exercise Program. Staff members coordinate course development, delivery of National Incident Management System (NIMS) training courses for state and local government representatives and coordination of the Homeland Security Consortium School Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) course within the state.
