US SENATE: HAWAII WILL RECEIVE $1.3 MILLION IN HOMELAND SECURITY GRANTS: Another recipient of a security grant is Shell Oil Products

Thursday, August 16, 2007
For Immediate Release

U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye announced today that the State of Hawaii will receive nearly $1.3 million from the Department of Homeland Security to support security and disaster preparedness in the islands. 

Of that total, the Hawaii State Department of Transportation will receive $764,625 for port security efforts. 

The State will also get $501,570 through Homeland Security’s emergency management performance grant program, which supports comprehensive State and local emergency management and preparedness for a broad range of threats and hazards. 

The metropolitan Honolulu area is also eligible to compete with nearly 30 other metropolitan areas – such as Phoenix, San Diego, Denver, Miami, New Orleans, Detroit, and Cleveland – for a portion of the $8.7 million available for transit security grants. These grants are intended to strengthen the protection of critical infrastructure from potential terrorist attacks. 

“As an island state, Hawaii is highly dependent on its ports and transportation infrastructure,” Senator Inouye said. “They are our lifeblood, and any threat to them also threatens the people of Hawaii. The Homeland Security grants are a much welcome shield.” 

Another recipient of a federal port security grant is Shell Oil Products, U.S. ( Honolulu), which will receive $23,172.
