It is mandatory that the person who prepares the application and the project director from each agency review the PowerPoint presentation in its entirety. A certification form will be posted with the PowerPoint. This form must be signed by the agency’s representative who viewed the PowerPoint and returned to KOHS by fax 502-564-7764 or email homelandsecurity@ky.gov. The application deadline is February 17, 2017.
