The registration and grant application process for the State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program (SLCGP) is now open! We highly encourage all districts with eligible cybersecurity projects to apply.
The goal of SLCGP is to assist state and local governments with any of the following:
- Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP)
- Data Backup, and Recovery Testing
- Multifactor Authentication Capability (MFA)
- Migrating your website domain and email to the .gov extension
- Consulting and Planning Services to implement any of the above
Applicants for SLCGP funds must submit a completed application, which describes the nature of your project, your current cybersecurity posture and capabilities, and how your project aligns with Oregon’s Cybersecurity Plan.
- The important first step in the process is to complete the grant registration by November 15, 2023. This will allow OEM to ensure that your project is eligible for funding prior to going through the application process.
As part of the registration process you will be asked for your Unique Entity ID (UEI). This is a new federal and state requirement for receiving grant funds.
If you do not have a Unique Entity ID yet, you will need to apply for a number at SAM.gov.
- Once your registration is approved, the next step is to complete the project application by January 10, 2024.
Detailed application instructions are available online.
