DHS Grant Funds Information


Since 2005, the Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) has supported at-risk nonprofit organizations located within designated high-threat urban areas across the United States to acquire and install physical security enhancement equipment and inspection and screening systems intended to deter, detect, or harden structures against terrorist attack.  The NSGP program is administered through the Federal Emergency Management Agency.  Eligible applicants apply for the grant through their respective state homeland security agencies who work with FEMA through the application and implementation processes.  Applicants may apply for grants up to $75 thousand. The application process typically occurs once a year, and the timing of the application process is established by Congress in conjunction with its completion of the annual appropriations process.  For more information about the NSGP program, please contact the Secure Community Network at scandesk@scnus.org.
