Grants to New Hampshire nonprofit organizations to enhance the physical security of state residents. Funding is intended for security-based initiatives to support organizations that are at particular risk of a terrorist attack. In addition, the program seeks to integrate the nonprofit's preparedness activities with broader state and local preparedness efforts.

In FY 2021, there are two funding sources appropriated for nonprofit organizations:

  1. NSGP - Urban Area (NSGP-UA): NSGP-UA funds nonprofit organizations located within FY 2021 Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)-designated urban areas; and
  2. NSGP - State (NSGP-S): Under NSGP-S, each state will receive a target allocation for nonprofit organizations located outside of FY 2021 UASI-designated urban areas.

FY 2021 NSGP allowable costs are focused on target hardening activities. Funding could be used for the acquisition and installation of security equipment on real property (including buildings and improvements) owned or leased by the nonprofit organization, specifically in prevention of and/or protection against the risk of a terrorist attack. This equipment is limited to two categories of items on the Authorized Equipment List (AEL): Physical Security Enhancement Equipment (Category 14), Inspection, and Screening Systems (Category 15). There is also an option to include portable or mobile radio and public warning systems, if assessed as necessary.

Certain costs for training of nonprofit staff and volunteers are also permitted. Allowable training topics are limited to the protection of critical infrastructure and key resources, including physical and cyber security, target hardening, active shooter training, and terrorism awareness/employee preparedness. Training conducted using NSGP funds must address a specific threat and/or vulnerability, as identified in the nonprofit organization’s investment justification (IJ).
