The first four rounds of PSGP grants appear to have been awarded in a manner consistent with the "broad scenarios" approach described above.
In 2005, the DHS began to award PSGP grants on a more selective basis as determined by the agency's new national assessment and ranking of port risk.
(58) PSGP round five awards were granted to 36 ports, predominantly the largest U.S.
The PSGP's round six grant eligibility was expanded to what the DHS has determined are the nation's 100 "most critical" ports (60) This was an apparent reversal of the program's strategic shift in round five which focused on larger ports.
