About the State and Local Cybersecurity Program (SLCGP)
The goal of the State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program (SLCGP) is to help states, local governments, rural areas, and territories address cybersecurity risks and cybersecurity threats to information systems. The program enables DHS to make targeted cybersecurity investments in state, local and territorial government agencies, thus improving the security of critical infrastructure and resilience of the services that state, local, and territorial governments provide to their communities.

What can the FFY22 funding be used for?

The Maryland Cyber Planning Committee has developed two programs to distribute the funds. Applicants are eligible to apply for both programs, but will only be awarded one:

  1. A Reimbursable Sub-grant Program where eligible entities can apply for funding for their own projects.
  2. An ISO Shared Services Program where jurisdictions can receive support for cybersecurity assessments, vulnerability management, and receive consultations on how to reduce risk, improve security, cyber readiness and resilience, and hardening networks from the Department of Information Technology’s Office of Security Management.

MDEM also encourages you to send any questions you have to: [email protected]
