Multi Request Israel trip funding approval
Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: Matthew Petti

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Maryland Public Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

All documents sufficient to show when Homeland Security Grant Program funds were used to pay for travel to or training in Israel during the calendar years 2010 through 2020.

The Homeland Security Grant Program includes the State Homeland Security Program (SHSP), the Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI), and Operation Stonegarden (OPSG).

You may find attached below an example of the type of document I am looking for. The example is a Long Beach Police Department document announcing that three officers have been authorized to use $16,500 in UASI funding to attend the 2016 Western States Counter-Terrorism Seminar in Israel. The document includes details of how the funding may be spent.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
