NSGP Investment Justification Application Deadline: Tuesday, 5:00 p.m., June 5, 2018
The 2018 NSGP seeks to integrate the preparedness activities of nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of terrorist attack with broader state and local preparedness efforts.
In FFY 2018, multiple funding allocations have been appropriated for nonprofit organizations located inside or outside of FFY 2018 Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) designated urban areas. As in previous fiscal years, the Nonprofit Security Grant Program - Urban Area (NSGP-UA) will be a competitive grant program that funds nonprofits located in UASI-designated urban areas. Under the Nonprofit Security Grant Program - State (NSGP-S), each state will receive an allocation for nonprofit organizations located outside of FFY 2018 Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)-designated urban areas.
The FFY 2018 NSGP objectives are to support efforts that:
- Build and sustain core capabilities
- Strengthen governance integration between private nonprofit entities and Federal, state, and local governments
- Encourage a whole community approach to security and emergency management
The FFY 2018 NSGP provides funding support for physical security enhancements and other security activities to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack.
The FFY 2018 NSGP plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System by supporting the development and sustainment of core capabilities. The core capabilities, outlined in the National Preparedness Goal are essential for the execution of the five mission areas—Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery—and the realization of a secure and resilient Nation. The development and sustainment of these core capabilities are not exclusive to any single organization, but rather require the combined effort of the whole community. The FFY 2018 NSGP's allowable costs support efforts to build and sustain core capabilities across mission areas.
