Provides to support target hardening and other physical security enhancements for nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack and located within one of the FY 2016 UASI-eligible urban areas.
The FY 2016 NSGP provides support for target hardening and other physical security enhancements to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of terrorist attack and located within one of the specific FY 2016 Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)-designated eligible urban areas. The program is also designed to promote coordination and collaboration in emergency preparedness activities among public and private community representatives, as well as state and local government agencies.
The State Administrative Agency (SAA) is the only entity eligible to apply to FEMA for NSGP funds on behalf of eligible nonprofit organizations. Eligible nonprofit organizations are those organizations described under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 which have been determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security to be at high risk of terrorist attack. Eligible nonprofits must be located within one of the FY 2016 Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) designated urban areas.
NSGP funds are allocated based on risk analysis, effectiveness, and integration with broader state and local preparedness efforts. Each nonprofit organization must apply through their SAA for up to a $75,000 grant award.
