Grants to New Jersey nonprofit organizations in eligible counties for equipment purchases and training to enhance organizational security. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended to support organizations that are at risk of being targeted by terrorists. Purchases must be used for property that is owned or leased by the nonprofit organization. Eligible applicants are located in the following counties: Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, and Union, and Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Mercer, Salem, and Warren.

The objective of the FY 2022 NSGP is to provide funding for physical and cyber security enhancements and other security-related activities to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack. The NSGP also seeks to integrate the preparedness activities of nonprofit organizations with broader state and local preparedness efforts.

Eligible 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations must utilize funding for the purchase and installation of security equipment on property owned or leased by the nonprofit organization. Equipment is limited to select items contained within categories 14 and 15 on the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Authorized Equipment List, which includes CCTV, card access readers, blast film, lighting, fencing, bollards, etc. Further, applicants may pursue investments in the areas of training, exercise, and planning that grow preparedness measures. This program also allows the hiring of security personnel with certain restrictions/requirements.

This federal program consists of two grant funding opportunities based on the applicant’s geographic location as described below: 

  • NSGP – Urban Area (NSGP-UA): This program is limited to nonprofit organizations located within designated areas of New Jersey (Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, and Union counties).
  • NSGP – State (NSGP-S): This program is limited to nonprofit organizations located within designated areas of New Jersey (Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Mercer, Salem, and Warren counties).
