UCN has vast experience assisting nonprofits in accessing security funding. Since the beginning of this program, UCN has successfully secured NSGP funding for numerous nonprofits in several states. UCN prides itself in completing every aspect of this competitive application process in a meticulous and seamless manner, providing nonprofits the services needed to access vital security funding.
In 2018, $50 million in funding was available through the US Department of Homeland Security Nonprofit Security Grant Program Urban Area Security Initiative to secure nonprofits (schools, daycares, nonprofit organizations, etc.) in designated urban areas that are at risk of a terrorist attack. This represented an increase of 100% from last year’s $25 million allocation.
Additionally, new this year, an additional $10 million was available for nonprofit security under the Nonprofit Security Grant Program – State (NSGP-S) and expanded access to areas in all States outside of large cities, opening up opportunities for more nonprofits to be awarded.
The application process is complex and highly competitive.
Preparation for applying should begin well in advance of the next grant cycle.
