The six counties of Southeast Michigan (Oakland, Macomb, Monroe, St. Clair, Washtenaw, and Wayne) and the City of Detroit have also formed a regional homeland security board (known as an Urban Area Security Initiative or UASI). This board coordinates grant funding for preparedness and response enhancement projects that are approved by the Department of Homeland Security. Here is a link to the UASI website.
