The Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency announced the Fiscal Year 2019 Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) in the amount of $60,000,000, available nationwide to nonprofits. Of this amount, $50,000,000 is available to nonprofits located in designated urban areas, and $10,000,000 is available to nonprofits located outside designated urban areas. The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) is the state administering agency for these funds.
The NSGP funding is focused on target hardening activities. The funding can be used for the acquisition and installation of security equipment on real property. Nonprofit organizations that are eligible to submit applications for the FY 2019 NSGP are those organizations that are described under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and exempt from tax under section 501(a) of such code.
In preparation for the FY 2019 NSGP application submission, and in light of the current terrorism attack on the Chabad of Poway, Cal OES Grants Management will offer an additional webinar to explain the NSGP requirements and inform the public and eligible 501 c3 organizations that include all Faith Based organizations that they are eligible to apply.
