    Summary

    The NSGP provides funding support for target hardening and other physical security enhancements to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack. The program seeks to integrate the preparedness activities of nonprofit organizations with broader state and local preparedness efforts. The NSGP also serves to promote emergency preparedness coordination and collaboration activities between public and private community representatives as well as state and local government agencies. 


    The objective of the FY 2021 NSGP is to provide 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.


    Given the evolving threat landscape, it is incumbent upon DHS/FEMA to continuously evaluate the national risk profile and set priorities that help ensure appropriate allocation of scarce security dollars. In assessing the national risk profile for FY 2021, 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:

    • Effective planning;
    • Training and awareness campaigns; and
    • Exercises

    Allowable NSGP costs include: 

    • Planning
    • Equipment - Eligible costs must focus on target hardening and physical security enhancements. This is limited to items in the following categories - (1) Category 14: Facility Security Enhancement Equipment, and (2) Category 15: Inspection and Screening Systems?. A comprehensive list of allowable equipment in these categories can be found in the DHS Authorized Equipment List (AEL) at: http://www.fema.gov/authorized-equipment-list. 
    • Construction and Renovation 
    • Training
    • Exercises
    • Maintenance and Sustainment 
    • Management and Administration (M&A) fees - Costs directly relating to the management and administration of IBSGP funds, such as financial management and monitoring. M&A costs may not exceed five percent (5%) of the total grant award.
