Grants to Indiana nonprofit organizations to protect and secure State residents against terrorism. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support activities and physical improvements that augment the ability of high-risk organizations to prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks.

The Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) is a grant program that is part of a comprehensive set of measures authorized by Congress and implemented by the DHS to help strengthen the nation’s communities against potential terrorist attacks. Among the five basic homeland security missions noted in the 2018 DHS Quadrennial Homeland Security Review, NSGP supports the goal to Strengthen National Preparedness and Resilience.

NSGP provides funding for physical security enhancements and other security-related activities to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack. The NSGP also seeks to integrate the preparedness activities of nonprofit organizations with broader state and local preparedness efforts. 

In assessing the national risk profile for FY 2020, one area attracts the most concern: Enhancing the protection of soft targets/crowded places.

Likewise, there are several enduring security needs that crosscut the homeland security enterprise. The following are second-tier priorities that help recipients implement a comprehensive approach to securing communities:

  1. Effective planning;
  2. Training and awareness campaigns; and
  3. Exercises.
