Webinars Offered on Nonprofit Security Grant Funding
The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Grant Programs Directorate (GPD), in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), invites faith-based, community and nonprofit organizations to participate in upcoming webinars regarding the fiscal year (FY) 2022 Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP).
The NSGP provides funding support through a competitive process for facility hardening and other security enhancements to nonprofit organizations at high risk of a domestic terrorist attack and promotes emergency preparedness coordination and collaboration between public and private community representatives, as well as state, local, tribal and territorial governments.
Federal funds of $90 million were provided in 2021 for organizations outside of 31 Urban Areas in the U.S., with Washington state receiving $1.88 million in total — $1,499,483 going to nonprofits outside of the Urban Area King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. Federal and state officials believe these amounts should increase significantly in 2022.
FEMA and its partners are committed to providing quality customer service to all our partners including socially vulnerable, underserved and under-represented communities. As such, and building on last year’s efforts, GPD is offering the following informational NSGP webinars for all nonprofit organizations interested in learning more about the program, priorities, eligibility, and application process.
Each webinar will present the same content, including:
- Physical Safety/Security: Vulnerability Self-Assessment Information and Tools
- NSGP Overview and FY 2021 NSGP Recap
- Preparation for the FY 2022 NSGP: What Nonprofit Organizations Should Do Now
- Open Forum: Moderated Question and Answer Session
