As part of the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021, Virginia has applied to receive federal cybersecurity grants to help state, local and tribal public bodies address gaps in government cybersecurity programs.
VITA, in collaboration with our partners including Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) serving as the State Administrative Agency (SAA), is working on the multiple steps that must occur for a successful grant application, including forming the cybersecurity planning committee that will approve the cybersecurity plan and priorities.
For more information on the grant distribution process, as well as current actions taken by the Commonwealth, please visit our Federal Cybersecurity Grants page.
The CSAM theme for 2022 is "We're all in.” Because we are all in on cybersecurity in Virginia.
