Nonprofit Security Grant Workshop

This one- and half-hour training workshop will cover how to use the state's Egrants website, so nonprofit organizations can correctly submit grant applications for the Office of the Governor's Homeland Security Grant Division's 2019 Nonprofit Security Grant Program.

The grant program supports security projects for nonprofit organizations that are at a high risk of terrorist attacks because of their ideology, beliefs or mission. Such nonprofits can use the grant funds to equip facilities with security provisions, to construct or renovate facilities to enhance security, or to provide training to their security personnel.
