MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin Emergency Management (WEM) is announcing the grant opportunity application period is now open for nonprofit organizations that may be at risk of a terrorist attack due to their ideology, beliefs, or mission.
The Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) is a federal grant administrated by WEM that provides support for nonprofit organizations that are operating a facility in Wisconsin and meet certain criteria. This funding opportunity can be used on security-related activities, such as planning, exercises, training, contracted security personnel, and the acquisition and installation of security equipment.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate that their nonprofit organization is at risk for a terrorist attack due to ideology, beliefs, or mission. They must also be able to provide a written vulnerability/risk assessment that identifies security gaps within their organization, along with detailed information about the specific threats, the vulnerabilities that exist and the potential consequences if action is not taken.
The deadline to apply for the 2022 NSGP is 5 p.m. Friday, May 27. FEMA and WEM guidance for the grant opportunity, including application requirements, are available online at https://dma.wi.gov/DMA/wem/
