While these trying times have impacted the entire country, nonprofits have been especially challenged, with more than 60% needing to add or expand services to meet new and growing community needs. As a result, access to funding opportunities is more important than ever.

The Indiana Dept. of Homeland Security has opened the Nonprofit Security Grant Program for 2021 grant applications. The NSGP is a competitive grant program intended to provide federal funding for physical security enhancements and other security-related activities to non-profit organizations from a potential terrorist attack.

This year, eligible organizations may request up to $150,000 through an individual application.

Any eligible nonprofit in Indiana may apply in the FY2021 grant round. Eligible non-profit organizations under the FY2021 NSGP notice of funding opportunity include:

• An organization described under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and exempt from tax under section 501(a) of such code; and

• An organization able to demonstrate, through the application, that the organization is at high risk of a terrorist attack.

All proposals and budgets, including the NSGP investment justification, must be submitted by email to [email protected] by 5 p.m. Friday, April 23.

More information about the NSGP application process, including the notice of funding opportunity and the investment justification, is available on the IDHS website.
