Illinois Terrorism Task Force (ITTF) Budget Approval

On April 28th, the full Illinois Terrorism Task Force (ITTF) met and reviewed the Federal FFY2021 State Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) and the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) grants. These grants focus on homeland security issues such as countering domestic extremism, cybersecurity, protecting soft targets and crowded places, emergent threats, planning and mutual aid. 

The SHSGP grant to Illinois was $14,427,260. The UASI grant (limited to the City of Chicago and Cook County) was $63 million.  The State retained $6,700,000 in UASI funds to be spent in Cook County.  The final budget approved by ITTF resulted in ILEAS receiving the following:

  • Communications          $833,510
  • Mutual Aid                    $418,850
  • Planning                    $1,400,260
