The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Monday announced a $25.5 funding to strengthen interoperable emergency communications along the U.S. borders with Canada and Mexico.

The $25.5 million in grant funding was allocated under the Border Interoperability Demonstration Project (BIDP), a one-time competitive grant program focused on developing innovative solutions to enhance border communication.

“The projects funded through the BIDP strengthen the security of our northern and southern borders, and our nation’s overall preparedness and emergency response capabilities,” said DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.

The BIDP grant funding will provide resources to state and local agencies to explore innovative, effective, and adaptable solutions for improving emergency communications.
