PLEASE NOTE: This program is not currently accepting applications for funding.

This program provides funding for nonprofit 501(c) (3) organizations (such as faith-based institutions, medical and health care facilities, and other human service entities) to competitively solicit one-time grant funding to enhance building safety and security for its members/visitors and staff. 

Priority will be given to applicants demonstrating the greatest need (experienced threats and/or incidents of terrorism or hate crimes known or believed to be related to their nonprofit organization’s purpose, mission, or services), and propose cost-effective solutions to address high-priority security gaps or weaknesses.

Organizations who have received funding through similar programs offered through the Office of Grants and Research are eligible and encouraged to apply. Funding for this opportunity is supported by the Federal American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.


Only a 501(c)3 nonprofit that can demonstrate a high risk of a terror attack or hate crime is eligible to apply.
