SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This package is a revision to the collection titled THIRA/SPR, OMB Control Number: 1660–0131. Although initially titled the State Preparedness Report (SPR), FEMA changed the name of the collection to the THIRA/SPR Unified Reporting Tool to more accurately reflect the information gathered and method of collection. The Post-Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2006 (PKEMRA), as amended by the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007, established an annual requirement for the 56 States and Territories to submit a State Preparedness Report. Because this reporting now includes States, Territories, urban areas, and Tribes, FEMA has revised the name of the report as the Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR). States, Territories, urban areas and Tribes receiving non-disaster preparedness grant funds administered by DHS submit the SPR annually, and this encompasses the requirements of the State Preparedness Report while also reflecting the updated reporting needs. The legislation requires a report amozie on DSK30RV082PROD with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Mar 12, 2018 Jkt 244001 on current capability levels and a description of targeted capability levels from all States, Territories, urban areas and Tribes receiving non-disaster preparedness grant funds administered by DHS. Each report must also include a discussion of the extent to which target capabilities identified in the applicable State homeland security plan and other applicable plans are unmet, and an assessment of resources needed to meet the preparedness priorities established under PKEMRA Section 646(e), including: (i) An estimate of the amount of expenditures required to attain the preparedness priorities; and (ii) the extent to which the use of Federal assistance during the preceding fiscal year achieved the preparedness priorities. To meet this requirement, States, Territories, Tribes, and urban areas first identify capability targets through the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) and then assess against these targets in the SPR. Through the SPR, these jurisdictions estimate their current capabilities, identify and describe gaps between current capabilities and targets, indicate their intended approach for addressing gaps in the future, and report on the impact of Federal grant dollars in building and sustaining capabilities. It is also important to note that completing the THIRA and SPR are allowable expenses under the grant awards.
