Create Strategic Policy for Urban v. Rural Areas

In funding and when writing policy, consider the different challenges faced by rural and urban states, differences in geography, and state size. Most Homeland Security funding targets population centers (ie. UASI, the formula for HSGP), however, incidents do not necessarily only effect those proximal to the event. It is important to use not only a risk based approach but an impact based approach and think beyond local population. (Consider the number of population centers fueled or fed by other areas.)
