DHS Awards $18.2 Mn in Tribal Cybersecurity Grants

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has unveiled over $18.2 million in awards through the Tribal Cybersecurity Grant Program (TCGP).  This funding, announced in collaboration with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), aims to aid Tribal Nations in addressing and mitigating systemic cyber risks and threats. 

These grants mark the inaugural disbursements under the Tribal Cybersecurity Grant Program, established by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. 

With more than 30 grants awarded, this program represents the largest number of grants ever provided by the Department to Tribal Nations in a single initiative.

“The Department of Homeland Security’s first-ever Tribal Cybersecurity Grant Program awards announced today – made possible by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law – will help tribes and tribal communities ensure they have the tools to assess risks, implement solutions, and increase cyber defenses,” Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas said in a media update.
