SMYRNA, DE: The Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) encourages nonprofit agencies to begin preparing for the upcoming Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) application period. NSGP is a competitive grant program that provides federal funding for physical security enhancements to eligible 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. The annual grant guidance is expected to be released in May 2022 with a short application period after.

 

As part of the application process, organizations will be required to submit a vulnerability risk assessment for their facility. The Delaware Information and Analyst Center (DIAC) and Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency have self-assessment resources available to assist nonprofits to complete this requirement. These resources can be found under Nonprofit Security Grant Program in the resources tab on DEMA’s website.

 

In FY2022, the Duns and Bradstreet Number will be replaced by a Unique Entity ID, a 12-character alphanumerical ID assigned to an entity through SAM.gov. All applicants will be required to have a Unique Entity ID. If you are already registered in SAM.gov (active or not), your Unique Entity ID is viewable at SAM.gov. If you are new to SAM.gov and will be registering for the first time, your Unique Entity ID is generated during registration. Please visit SAM.gov to learn more and register for your Unique Entity ID. 

 

Completing a risk assessment and registering for a Unique Entity ID can take time, so DEMA encourages interested nonprofits to begin the process now. Visit dema.delaware.gov and news.delaware.gov for updates as they become available. Additional NSGP information and resources are available at:  https://www.fema.gov/grants/preparedness/nonprofit-security.

 

Although the total award amount for the fiscal year 2022 is not yet known, Delaware was the recipient of nearly $1 million to support nonprofits in the fiscal year 2021.

 

For questions regarding NSGP, contact Mark Dworkin (mark.dworkin@delaware.gov).
