The Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) provides funding support for security-related and physical security enhancements to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of terrorist attack due to their ideology, beliefs, or mission. The NSGP continues to be a nationally competitive grant program, and promotes emergency preparedness coordination and collaboration activities between public and private community representatives, as well as state, local, and tribal government agencies. Multiple funding allocations have been appropriated for nonprofit organizations located inside or outside of Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) designated urban areas. Counties within the Denver UASI area are: Adams, Araphahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Denver, Douglas, Elbert, Gilpin and Jefferson.
NSGP allowable costs are focused on security-related activities. Funding can be used for security-related planning; exercises; training; contracted security personnel; and the acquisition and installation of security equipment on real property (including buildings and improvements) owned or leased by the nonprofit organization at the time of application. Equipment is limited to two sections of items on the Authorized Equipment List (AEL): Physical Security Enhancement Equipment (Section 14) and Inspection and Screening Systems (Section 15).
Certain costs for training of nonprofit staff and members/congregants are also permitted. Allowable training topics are limited to the protection of critical infrastructure and key resources, including physical and cyber security, target hardening, and terrorism awareness/employee preparedness. Training conducted using NSGP funds must address a specific threat or vulnerability, as identified in the nonprofit organization’s investment justification (IJ) in the application process.
