MESSAGE: Response to COVID-19
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) expanded guidance of the Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) and allowed for eligible nonprofits in Alaska to apply for funding for physical security enhancements and other security activities (planning, exercise, security services and training) through the NSGP-State program in 2021.
Under the 2021 NPSG-S the State of Alaska was awarded a target allocation of $1,200,000.00 to fund the projects of multiple subrecipient nonprofits in Alaska. Funding will be administered as subaward(s) by the program’s State Administrative Agency (SAA), the DHS&EM.
The Alaska Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHS&EM), is soliciting NPSG-S project applications from eligible nonprofits until 11:59 PM Alaska Time on Thursday, April 22, 2021.
Individual subawards are capped at $150,000 per program guidance. If feasible, projects may be partially funded to maximize the program’s benefit. The FY 2021 NSGP local period of performance is anticipated to be 36 months, October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2024.
DHS&EM is instructing applicants to review the FY21 FEMA NOFO at https://www.grants.gov for specifics on program priorities and eligible activities. The Investment Justification (IJ) serves as the majority of the “application” for the grant.
The NSGP focuses on target hardening projects and projects related to security training for all nonprofit staff, planning related costs, and exercise related costs, in addition to allowable target hardening equipment. The NSGP seeks to integrate the preparedness activities of nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack with broader state and local preparedness efforts. Please read the NOFO for further program guidelines.
Eligible nonprofit organizations are described under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (IRC) and exempt from tax under section 501(a) of such code. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) does not require certain organizations such as churches, mosques, and synagogues to apply for and receive a recognition of exemption under section 501(c)(3) of the IRC. Such organizations are automatically exempt if they meet the requirements of section 501(c)(3) and are determined to be at high risk of a terrorist attack by the Secretary of Homeland Security.
Complete applications must be received by Alaska DHS&EM by 11:59 PM Alaska Time on Thursday, April 22, 2021. Applications should be submitted via email to email@example.com or fax to 907-428-7009. Email of the documents is the preferred method of submission. Information on the State’s review and scoring process can be found in the NOFO.
As part of the FY 2021 NSGP application each eligible nonprofit subapplicant must submit the following four documents to DHS&EM by 11:59 PM Alaska Time on Thursday,
