CRS Reports – Week of 3-18-23 – DHS Overview

This week the Congressional Research Service (CRS) published a report on “The Department of Homeland Security: A Primer”. The report provides an overview of the structure and history of DHS. As noted in the introduction: “This report is intended to brief congressional staff on the mission, structure, staffing, and funding of DHS.”

At the program level, this report is not very deep. It does not, for instance, break out the various authorized and not authorized programs within CISA, including no mention of the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) or ChemLock programs for instance. To be fair, at 32 pages, that may be a bit more information than space would allow.
