Grants to Missouri nonprofits for projects to enhance the physical security of nonprofit organization sites. Funding is intended to improve the ability of nonprofits to protect against, prevent, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks. 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.
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.
In FY 2021, there are two funding sources appropriated for nonprofit organizations:
1) Nonprofit Security Grant Program - Urban Area (NSGP-UA): NSGP-UA funds nonprofit organizations located within FY 2021 Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)-designated urban area (St. Louis City and the Missouri Counties of Franklin, Jefferson, St. Charles, and St. Louis).
2) Nonprofit Security Grant Program - State (NSGP-S): Under NSGP-S, each state will receive a target allocation for nonprofit organizations located outside of the FY 2021 St. Louis UASI-designated urban area (St. Louis City and the Missouri Counties of Franklin, Jefferson, St. Charles, and St. Louis).
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.
Given the evolving threat landscape, it is incumbent upon DHS/FEMA to continuously evaluate the national risk profile and set priorities that help ensure appropriate allocation of scarce security dollars. In assessing the national risk profile for FY 2021, one area attracts the most concern:
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:
