    Louisiana Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP)


    The Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System (NPS). It supports the building, sustainment, and delivery of core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal) of a secure and resilient Nation. 

    Core capabilities are those capabilities, organized around 5 mission areas (Prevention, Protection, Response, Recovery and Mitigation) necessary to:
    • Avoid, prevent or stop a threatened or actual act of terrorism, within the United States;
    • Secure and protect the homeland against acts of terrorism and manmade or natural disasters;
    • Through emergency disaster and response efforts, save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs after incident;
    • Assist communities affected by an emergency or disaster event to recover effectively; and
    • Lessen the impacts of disasters by reducing the loss of life and property.
    The building sustainment and delivery of core capabilities are not excessive to any single level of government, organization, or community. It requires the combined efforts of the whole community to promote coordination and collaboration in emergency preparedness activities among public and private community representatives, as well as local and State-government agencies.

    NSGP provides support for target hardening and other physical security enhancements. The program is designed to promote coordination and collaboration in emergency preparedness activities among public and private community representatives, as well as State and local government agencies. Funding can be used for the acquisition and installation of security equipment on real property (including buildings and improvements) owned or leased by the nonprofit organization, specifically in prevention of and/or protection against the risk of a terrorist attack.
    Equipment is limited to 2 categories of items on the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Authorized Equipment List (AEL):
    • Physical Security Enhancement Equipment (Category 14); and
    • Inspection and Screening Systems (Category 15).

    Examples of eligible NSGP activities include:
    • Certain Equipment Purchases;
    • Construction and renovation of Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs);
    • Maintenance contracts, repair/replacement costs, upgrades, and user fees;
    • Management and administration (M&A) of the grant;
    • Threat and risk assessments; and
    • Training programs.

    Additional Information

    Awards made to the SAA for NSGP carry additional pass-through requirements. Pass-through is defined as an obligation on the part of the state to make subawards to selected nonprofit organizations. The SAA must provide 100 percent of funds awarded under NSGP to successful nonprofit applicants within 45 days of receipt of the funds. A letter of intent (or equivalent) to distribute funds is not sufficient. Award subrecipients that are selected for funding under this program must be provided with funding within 45 days from the date the funds are first made available to the recipient so that they can initiate implementation of approved investments. 

    For the SAA to successfully meet the pass-through requirement and provide funding to the subrecipients, the SAA must meet the following requirements: 
    • There must be some action by the SAA to establish a firm commitment to award the funds to the selected nonprofit organization; 
    • The action must be unconditional on the part of the SAA (i.e., no contingencies for availability of SAA funds);
    • There must be documentary evidence of the commitment of the award of funding to the selected nonprofit organization; and 
    • The SAA must communicate the terms of the subaward to the selected nonprofit organization
