Port Security Grant Program: The Port Security Grant Program will support efforts of critical national seaports/terminals to enhance port security through enhanced facility and operational security including but not limited to access control, physical security, cargo security, and passenger security. TSA is coordinating with the Maritime Administration (MARAD), the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), and the Department of Homeland Security's Office of State and Local Government Coordination (OSLGC) in this effort. An objective of TSA is security oversight of the Nation's seaports and waterways. Funding under the Port Security Program has contributed to the comprehensive transportation security strategy and range of enhancements directed by the President following September 11, 2001.

1. Prerequisites. (a) In compliance with the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA), applicants are required to be owners/operators of federally regulated public or private ports, terminals, U.S. inspected passenger vessels, or ferries as defined in 33 CFR Part 101, 104, 105, and 106. Grant-funded activity must take place within the footprint of the regulated port, terminal, U.S. inspected passenger vessel, or ferry. (b) In addition, applicants must have completed a security assessment and tie the security enhancements to that assessment in order to be eligible. Security assessments must be available for review upon the request of the evaluators. 2. Critical National Seaports/Terminals. To be considered a critical national seaport/terminal, one or more of the following attributes must be met: (a) A nationally important economic port or terminal responsible for a large volume of cargo movement or movement of products that are vital to U.S. economic interests as required for national security. (b) Ports, terminals, U.S. passenger vessels, or ferries responsible for movement of a high number of passengers. (c) Ports or terminals responsible for the movement of hazardous cargo. (d) Strategic ports, as designated by a Maritime Administration port planning order. (e) Controlled Ports - Ports which have access controls for vessels from certain countries due to national security issues. Controlled ports are: New London/Groton, CT; Portsmouth, NH (including Kittery, ME and Dover, NH on the Piscataqua River); Hampton Roads, VA (including Norfolk, Newport News, Jamestown, Yorktown, and Portsmouth, VA); Charleston, SC; Kings Bay, GA; Port Canaveral, FL; Panama City, FL; Pensacola, FL; Port St. Joe, FL; Port Hueneme, CA; San Diego, CA; Honolulu, HI. [Note: To establish the criticality, applicants must provide data/statistics that relate to their specific port project (for port applications), terminal project (for terminal applications), waterways, U.S. inspected passenger vessel or ferry projects. Terminals and vessels cannot rely on aggregated port statistics to meet eligibility criteria. Evaluators intend to use available applicable government and industry data to assess the reasonableness of cargo type and volume (tonnage and value), hazardous materials data, or number of passengers contained in the grant application.]
