NY has 43 Nonprofit security grantees receiving $3.1 million
On Friday FEMA released its Fiscal Year 2012 Preparedness Grant Programs Allocation Announcement. This year the United States Department of Homeland Security allocated a total of $10,000,000 in funding support for target hardening and other physical security enhancements and activities to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack and located within one of the UASI-eligible urban areas.
Once again close to 1/3 of the grants ($3,119,184) went to NY organizations. The total will be split among 43 New York nonprofits (Evidently, FEMA removed the results information from its website).
The NY Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness will administer the grants and will send out letters to all applicants as soon as they receive the official notification from D hopes to schedule a pre-contract seminar in August.
