About Region H RHSOC

Region H RHSOC

New Region H Map 

Executive Order 06‐09, signed by Governor Matt Blunt in February 2006, established Regional Homeland Security Oversight Committees to begin "establishing strategies and priorities for the Missouri Homeland Security Grant Funding programs and other Homeland Security initiatives."

Since 2006, Mo-Kan Regional Council has been the lead Regional Planning Commission for the Region H Homeland Security Oversight Committee (RHSOC). Mo-Kan, contracted with Missouri Office of Homeland Security (OHS), is responsible for event coordination, administration, fiscal operations, professional development, community outreach, and publicity for the RHSOC. Assisting with these tasks regionally through subcontracts are Green Hills Regional Planning Commission and Northwest Regional Council of Governments.

The 32-member, 16-discipline Region H Homeland Oversight Committee meets on a quarterly basis, and is charged with the task of planning regional response to acts of terrorism, natural disasters, and other events, as well as locally allocating State Homeland Security Grant funds from the State of Missouri
