The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Grant Programs Directorate (GPD), in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), invites houses of worship, faith-based, community, and nonprofit organizations to participate in Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) webinars.
The NSGP provides funding support through a competitive process for physical and other security enhancements to nonprofit organizations, which includes houses of worship, faith-based and community organizations and promotes emergency preparedness coordination and collaboration between public and private community representatives, as well as state, local, tribal, and territorial governments.
FEMA is committed to providing ongoing engagement and expanding outreach through federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners to vulnerable, underserved, and/or underrepresented populations. Last year, FEMA held 18 virtual events reaching over 5,000 participants from more than 369 nonprofit organizations. GPD is offering webinars for all nonprofit organizations interested in learning more about the NSGP, including priorities, eligibility, and application process.
Each webinar will present the same content, including:
- Lessons Learned: A Summary of the FY 2021 NSGP
- What to Do Now: Preparation for the FY 2022 NSGP
- Physical Safety/Security: Vulnerability Self-Assessment Information and Tools
- Open Forum: Moderated Questions and Answers Session
