The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) offers a competitive grant to eligible nonprofit organizations planning to install hardware and conduct training to support target hardening and counter-surveillance.
The program this year was delayed (along with many other allocations) by the budget battle and details about the grant program have not yet been released. For the latest suggestions on how to put together a successful application reserve here for the online JCRC webinar (see below) on May 12th at 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM.
The following includes the current available information:
Based on input from past participants, we are offering this session exclusively over the internet. Information applicable to all eligible applicants will be presented at the beginning of the webinar, followed by NY specific guidance.
For further information contact Dov Horwitz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that all of this information is tentative. The JCRC webpage (www.jcrcny.org/securitygrants) will have ongoing guidance.
Thanks to the great work of Rob Goldberg we have some preliminary information from DHS.
- DHS currently expects to release the guidance to the state on May 9th. The DHSES staff (aka our friends in Albany) will then put out the Request For Applications just as soon as they reasonably can.
- The most significant change this coming year is that preference will be given to nonprofit organizations that have not received prior years funding. That doesn’t mean that past grantees can not apply. However, they will be at a competitive disadvantage.
- We do not yet know when the applications will be due. We continue to advise you to download the Investment Justification from last year and to begin to prepare answers to those questions ASAP. This year the Investment Justification will be in MS Excel format. You will be able to paste your answers into the new DHS template.
Note that all of this information is tentative. The JCRC webpage (www.jcrcny.org/securitygrants) will have ongoing guidance. The JCRC plans to hold a webinar on the grant guidance soon after it is released.
As many of you know, the President published his budget recommendations for the fiscal year 2012 budget cycle, which begins October 1st. With this measure, Congress commences its consideration of the budget and appropriations processes for the session. Meanwhile, Congress has not yet completed work on the current FY2011 appropriations, leaving the Nonprofit Security Grant Program in limbo (along with many other federally funded programs).
