Homeland Security & Emergency Services

Homeland Security and Emergency Services

As sovereign governments, Tribal Nations, and our first responders, have a responsibility to build, sustain, and improve capabilities to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate all hazards. The federal government has an obligation to support Tribal Nations in these efforts. However, a failure to fully recognize and support our sovereignty leaves Tribal Nations without robust homeland security and emergency services infrastructure. There are glaring disparities and eligibility restrictions for Tribal Nations, as compared to states, in funding across an array of federal programs. USET SPF continues to advocate for Tribal Nation parity in homeland security and emergency management, including in access to disaster response resources.
