State gets $7 million Homeland Security money
Delaware will be getting more than $7 million from the federal government to strengthen the state's preparedness for such things as natural and man-made emergencies and other disasters.
The money will be coming from the Department of Homeland Security, part of more than $1.3 billion being doled out nationwide.
The State Homeland Security Program will get $2.8 million, more than $3 million will go to Emergency Management Performance Grants and slightly more than $1 is earmarked to help protect the Port of Wilmington from terrorism.
