Department of Homeland Security

Created during the first term of President George W. Bush, the Department of Homeland Security is responsible for preventing terrorist attacks within the United States and to also reduce America's vulnerability to terrorism. On its website, visitors can learn about grant opportunities provided by the department, read about its current leadership, and read the agency's overall strategic plan. Given the department's broad mission, the site is divided into several thematic areas, including emergencies and disasters, travel and transportation, immigration and borders, and threats and protection. Each section contains relevant information, such as various efforts to protect the country's waterways and ports, and the homeland security advisory system. The research and technology area is quite helpful as it includes rather interesting material on the various research facilities and laboratories that are performing different operations under the agency's direction.
