Grant Description
Grants to Arizona nonprofit organizations for activities to improve organizational security. Funding is intended for improvements to both physical and cyber security, as well as other security-related activities to protect nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack.

In FFY 2023, there are two funding sources appropriated for nonprofit organizations:

  • Nonprofit Security Grant Program - Urban Area (NSGP-UA): NSGP-UA funds nonprofit organizations located within FFY 2023 Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)-designated urban areas. In Arizona, the only UASI-designated area is the Phoenix metropolitan area which primarily encompasses Maricopa County.
  • Nonprofit Security Grant Program - State (NSGP-S): Under NSGP-S, each state will receive a target allocation for nonprofit organizations located outside of FFY 2023 UASI-designated urban areas.

The NSGP provides funding support for physical security enhancements and other security-related activities to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack. NSGP seeks to integrate the preparedness activities of nonprofit organizations with broader state and local preparedness efforts.

In assessing the national risk profile for FY 2023, one area attracts the most concern:

  1. Enhancing the protection of soft targets/crowded places;

Likewise, there are several enduring security needs that crosscut the homeland security enterprise. The following are second-tier priorities that help recipients implement a comprehensive approach to securing communities:

  1. Effective planning;
  2. Training and awareness campaigns; and
  3. Exercises.
