The motorcoach industry continually strives to improve the safety and security of bus operations. Over the past few years, enhancing motorcoach security has become a key issue for all motorcoach operators and a priority issue for the nation as a whole as motorcoaches visit nearly all of our nation's historic landmarks, pass along or through much of our critical infrastructure, and transport nearly 600 million passengers annually. Since 2003, over $118 million in grants have been awarded to the motorcoach industry by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through the Intercity Bus Security Grant Program (IBSGP). The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has recently released the FY 2021 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) Announcement for the Intercity Bus Security Grant Program (IBSGP) as well as other Preparedness Grant Programs on February 26, 2021. Completed applications are due by May 14, 2021. You will have a total of 80 days to submit your applications through http://www.grants.gov, but there are many steps in the registration process. This webinar will get you on the fast track to being prepared.

FEMA will host a total of three IBSGP outreach calls throughout the application period. Each call should last no more than 60 minutes. The information for each is as follows:
