Awardees for the Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) for Fiscal Year 2022 have been announced by FEMA and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. We are thrilled to report that Teach NYS successfully wrote grants and provided application reviews and filing for almost 40 yeshivas, shuls, and camps. 60% of those grants were approved (24) and awarded a total of $3.45 million in grant funds.
This year, $250 million was made available for nonprofits to spend on security measures such as cameras, fortified doors and windows, access controls, alarm systems, and contracted security personnel. In New York, 310 organizations received a total of $49 million in security grant funding.
The NY State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (DHSES) will be sending award letters and contacting awardees with further instructions. In the meantime, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out if your organization was awarded NSGP funding.
Our team offers implementation assistance to awardees of the NSGP grant and the NY Securing Communities Against Hate Crimes (SCAHC) grant. If you would like more information on our implementation services and how to successfully utilize your grant funding, please email email@example.com.
If your organization has not yet applied for an NSGP grant, please reach out to us firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can help you prepare for and apply for next year’s grant. Teach Coalition and OU Advocacy are lobbying to increase funding to $360 million for the Fiscal Year 2023 NSGP grant. We will be in touch with more information about this and other security measures in the coming months.
