NSGP Investment Justification Application Deadline: Wednesday, 5:00 p.m., May 15, 2019
The 2019 NSGP provides funding support for physical security enhancements and other security related activities to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of terrorist attack. NSGP seeks to integrate the preparedness activities of nonprofit organizations with broader state and local preparedness efforts.
In FFY 2019, there are two funding sources appropriated for nonprofit organizations:
- Nonprofit Security Grant Program - Urban Area (NSGP-UA): NSGP-UA funds nonprofit organizations located within FFY 2019 Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)-designated urban areas.
- Nonprofit Security Grant Program - State (NSGP-S): Under NSGP-S, each state will receive a target allocation for nonprofit organizations located outside of FFY 2019 UASI-designated urban areas.
The FFY 2019 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 2019 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 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) continuously evaluates the national risk profile and sets priorities that help ensure appropriate allocation of scarce security dollars. FFY 2019 NSGP supports the following two priority areas to:
- Enhance the protection of soft targets/crowded places
- Mitigate the loss of life and property against threats and hazards
