The Challenge

Many state and local governments lack the funding to address cybersecurity threats and engage skilled resources. The State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program (SLCGP) provides state, tribal, and local governments funding to develop and implement Cybersecurity Plans and projects to mitigate cybersecurity risks.

Through the SLCGP, the federal government awards grants directly to states and United States territories. (A similar program, the Tribal Cybersecurity Grant Program [TCGP], exists for tribal governments.) However, states must distribute 80 percent of the funds they receive among local governments. To receive these subawards, local governments should submit Investment Justifications to their states’ Cybersecurity Planning Committees. Investment Justifications must reference the capability gaps identified in a Required Capabilities Assessment, among other requirements.

The program includes $1 billion in grants over the next three fiscal years. The deadline for states to apply for assistance during Fiscal Year 2023 is November 15, 2022. Local governments face a similar timeline, because the states must account for local agencies’ roles and responsibilities in executing statewide Cybersecurity Plans.

How We Help

Cybersecurity Grant Support from Securance can help you qualify for the SLCGP in the following ways:

1. Conduct a Cybersecurity Capabilities Assessment against the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and other best practices. Our assessment will  identify gaps in your security program and practices.

2. Review and test cyber resilience, incident response, and continuity of operations plans.

3. Identify threats, risks, and vulnerabilities facing IT and operational technology (OT) systems. Make recommendations to better align IT and OT security objectives.

4. Develop a prioritized roadmap, implementation plan, and Investment Justification based on the Capabilities Assessment. We will provide estimated timeframes, durations, funding and resource requirements, and milestones for each project.
