2017 Grant for JedEye Customers
Non-profit customers deploying JedEye in 2017 are eligible for the Non-profit Security Grant Program (NSGP), a federal program providing funding to non-profit organizations for target hardening and security enhancements. The program provides for up to $75,000 and can pay for an entire JedEye deployment (Yes!, JedEye, using the grant program an organization can acquires JedEye for free.)
The NSGP is easy to access and opened up in June of 2017 with a deadline middle of June. The exact opening date and deadline was dependent on when the Federal government transferred from funding through the continuing resolution to a proper budget and what region of the country the applicant was in.
JedEye is eligible for the grant under application category (AEL Category) 14SW-01-VIDA
The NSGP is, by far, the easiest program to apply for, putting very little burden on the applicant and not requiring assistance from a professional grant writer. In fact, the application process and the award process are structured to be so easy to go through, with minimum paperwork and absolutely minimum preparatory work required.

Purpose of Program
The FY 2017 NSGP provides support for target hardening and other physical security enhancements to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of terrorist attack and located within one of the specific FY 2017 Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)-designated eligible urban areas. The program is also designed to promote coordination and collaboration in emergency preparedness activities among public and private community representatives, as well as state and local government agencies.
The State Administrative Agency (SAA) was the only entity eligible to apply to FEMA for NSGP funds on behalf of eligible nonprofit organizations. Eligible nonprofit organizations were those organizations described under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 which have been determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security to be at high risk of terrorist attack. Eligible nonprofits had to be located within one of the FY 2016 Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) designated urban areas.
NSGP funds are allocated based on risk analysis, effectiveness, and integration with broader state and local preparedness efforts. Each nonprofit organization applied through their SAA for up to a $75,000 grant award. In Baltimore in Maryland the SAA is Maryland Emergency Management Agency; in Washington D.C. the SAA is the Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency; and in Virginia the SAA is Virginia Department of Emergency Management.
The paper burden and prepatory burden for developing the NSGP application is minimal.
