This paper describes the initiatives of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) at a fairly high level so that members of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) can gain an overview understanding of the direction that agency is taking. Similarly, the highway security programs of the U.S. Department of Transportation, in conjunction with the DHS, are described. The paper then desribes other programs on behalf of other agencies within the federal government, states, and urban areas that have been undertaken.
