REISTERSTOWN, MD—The Maryland Department of Emergency Management this week announced awards totaling more than $8.7 million in federal homeland security grants to 68 Maryland nonprofit organizations. The awards are funded by the 2022 United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP).

“This funding provides much-needed financial support to nonprofit groups, which are part of the fabric of American life,” said MDEM Secretary Russ Strickland. “At a time of growing threats to members of faith communities, places of worship and schools across the United States, these grants provide the funding needed to secure the public spaces where Marylanders gather every day and will help to prevent or minimize the consequences of any possible attack. »

These grant programs are part of a comprehensive package of measures authorized by Congress and implemented by DHS to help strengthen communities nationwide against possible terrorist attacks. Funding can be used for contracted security personnel, as well as planning, exercises, training, and the acquisition and installation of security equipment on real property (including buildings and improvements) owned or rented by the non-profit organization. Grants are awarded to 68 nonprofit organizations statewide out of 115 applicants.

The NSGP provides $250 million nationwide in financial support for hardening and other physical security enhancements to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of terrorist attack. The intent of the competitive grant funding is to help organizations secure the resources needed to support and integrate preparedness activities into broader state and local preparedness efforts. It is also designed to promote coordination and collaboration in emergency preparedness activities between representatives of public and private communities, as well as national and local government agencies.

Below is a list and breakdown of nonprofit organizations in Maryland that have applied for and received NSGP awards. NSGP scholarships for non-profit organizations in the National Capital Region (NCR) are not processed by MDEM.
