Nonprofit Security Grant Program

The purpose of the FY 2019 NSGP grant is to provide funds to integrate the preparedness activities of nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack with broader state and local preparedness efforts.

The FY 2019 NSGP plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System by supporting the development and sustainment of core capabilities. The core capabilities are essential for the execution of the five mission areas—Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery—and the realization of a secure and resilient Nation. The development and sustainment of these core capabilities are not exclusive to any single organization, but rather require the combined effort of the whole community. The FY 2019 NSGP’s allowable costs support efforts to build and sustain core capabilities across mission areas.

Funding for this program is provided to Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS). GEMA/HS is the state Administrative Authority for this program. Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and Grant Programs Directorate (GPD).


NOTE: Applications will only be accepted on-line via the new Georgia EMGrantsPro System at beginning February 18, 2019.
