What does this program mean for your business? #
The main priority of the Nonprofit Security Grant Program is to enhance the protection of soft targets and crowded places. This program has the potential to provide federal funds to your business for private contracted security guards; CCTV security cameras; security screening equipment for people and baggage; access controls such as fencing, gates, card readers, etc; and cybersecurity enhancements.
In other words, this program could very well fund the entire security operation at your business. For example, if you wanted to hire our company to provide guard services at your place of business, if funded by this grant, you wouldn’t have to pay a penny to us for it.
