NJ Nonprofits: How to get a Security Guard Grant

A Time Sensitive Notice from PRIME Insurance

Security Guard Funding Application for Nonprofits in the State of NJ

Following the September 2016 succession of bombs in Seaside Park and Elizabeth, NJ and NY, on the heels of other domestic and international terror attacks, the NJ Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness was prompted to focus its attention on small locations where people congregate that do not have adequate security.

The NJ Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, thus, has decided to offer various forms of security assistance, among them a grant program for nonprofits in the Garden State: NJ Nonprofit Security Grant Pilot Program – NSGPP.

This grant presents $10,000 to qualifying non-profit operations, like schools and religious centers, for the express purpose of hiring security guards for protection.

With a new extended deadline of Friday, May 11, 2018, interested parties can email applications up to that date by following the guidelines at

Any NJ security business can help applying non-profits with required info about associated expenses related to hiring security guards.
