Request a Grant Writer

Grants to California nonprofits for projects to enhance the physical security of nonprofit organization sites. Funding is intended for equipment to secure sites against terrorist attacks based on the organization's mission, beliefs, or ideology. Funding is also intended to integrate the preparedness activities of nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack with broader state and local preparedness efforts.

The Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) is one of three grant programs that constitute DHS/FEMA’s focus on enhancing the ability of state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, as well as nonprofits, to prevent, protect against, respond to and recover from terrorist attacks. These grant programs are part of a comprehensive set of measures authorized by Congress and implemented by DHS to help strengthen the nation’s communities against potential terrorist attacks. Among the five basic homeland security missions noted in the DHS Strategic Plan, NSGP supports the goal to Strengthen National Preparedness and Resilience.

The objective of the FY 2021 NSGP is to provide funding for physical 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.

In FY 2021, there are two funding sources appropriated for nonprofit organizations:

  1. NSGP - Urban Area (NSGP-UA): NSGP-UA funds nonprofit organizations located within FY 2021 Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)-designated urban areas; and
  2. NSGP - State (NSGP-S): Under NSGP-S, each state will receive a target allocation for nonprofit organizations located outside of FY 2021 UASI-designated urban areas.

Finally, for FY 2021, DHS is focused on the criticality of information sharing and collaboration to building a national culture of preparedness and protecting against terrorism and other emerging threats to national security.
