Non-Profit Security Grant Program (NSGP)

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. 

The NSGP is an annual grant program that typically becomes available in the Spring of each year. The maximum amount per Investment Justification (IJ) is determined each year. Applicants are limited to one IJ per physical facility per year. IJs must be submitted to the State Administering Agency (SAA), in this case, DEM, by the due date to apply for the upcoming grant cycle.
