FY 2021 Nonprofit Security Grant Program 

Call for Grant Applications: Fiscal Year 2021 Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP-S) - State

The Kansas Highway Patrol, Office of Homeland Security, is seeking applications for the FY 2021 Nonprofit Security Grant Program - State (NSGP-S) from eligible nonprofit organizations. 

The FY 2021 NSGP-S funding supports target hardening and other physical security enhancements to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack. 

 The NSGP-S promotes emergency preparedness coordination and collaboration activities between public and private community representatives as well as state and local government agencies.

The FY 2021 NSGP-S objectives are to support efforts that:

  • Build and sustain core capabilities
  • Strengthen governance integration between private nonprofit entities and Federal, State, and local governments;
  • Encourage a whole community approach to security and emergency management.

Updated Application Cap

Each nonprofit organization may apply for up to $100,000.00.  The increase in our previously stated cap is due to an increase in funding available.

Eligible nonprofit organizations are those organizations that are:

  • Determined to be at high risk of a terrorist attack by the Secretary of Homeland Security. 
  • 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; See links for additional information on nonprofits

Note: The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) does not require certain organizations such as churches, mosques, and synagogues to apply for and receive 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). These organizations are not required to provide recognition of exemption. For organizations that the IRS requires to apply for and receive a recognition of exemption under 501(c)(3), the state may or may not require recognition of exemption, as long as the method chosen is applied consistently.
