Note: The new deadline is June 8, 2018 at 5:00 PM
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security released its Notice of Funding Opportunity.
- In FY 2018, Congress appropriated $50 million for nonprofit security through the Urban Area Security Initiative (NSGP-UA) for 32 regions, including New York City (including Long Island and Westchester). There is a supplemental program (NSGP-S) of $10 million (with grants up to $100,000) covering areas outside of the designated regions.
- Each eligible organization can apply for equipment totaling $150,000.
- Target hardening proposals can now include equipment, planning and training.
- Should I apply to NSGP-UA or NSGP-S?
If your nonprofit organization is physically located within a FY 2018 UASI-designated urban area, then you may apply to NSGP-UA; if your nonprofit organization is not physically located within a FY 2018 UASI-designated urban area then you may apply to NSGP-S. You may not apply to both programs. For more information about the NSGP-S (supplemental) program for organizations outside of the 32 designated areas, see the JFNA preliminary memorandum here.
