Security Guard Reimbursement for Nonpublic Schools

On January 5, 2016, Local Law 2 of 2016 was enacted, which empowers the mayor of the City of New York to authorize a program to reimburse qualifying non-public schools for the cost of procuring certain security services. The mayor designated the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) as the law’s administering agency, through the DCAS Division of Fiscal & Business Management (FBM). DCAS is responsible for managing all aspects of the citywide initiative, including but not limited to, the processing of applications for new schools, recertifications for existing schools, annual budgets, invoices for reimbursements, and conducting periodic training seminars.

The 2021-2022 application period is now closed. The application period for the 2022-2023 school year will open in March 2022.
