Buffer Zone Protection Program (BZPP) Guidance and Application Kit

The vast majority of America’s critical infrastructure is owned and/or operated by State, local and private sector partners. The funds provided by the BZPP are provided to increase the preparedness capabilities of jurisdictions responsible for the safety and security of communities surrounding high-priority critical infrastructure and key resource (CIKR) assets through allowable planning and equipment acquisition. The purpose of the guidance in this document is to assist FEMA and partners in preparing, developing, and managing grant activities.
