DHS Hosts Grant Workshop for Muslim Nonprofits to Enhance Security
March 15, 2012
Last week, MPAC organized a grant-writing workshop for Muslims institutions to learn how to achieve funds from the Department of Homeland Security that would help improve the security and safety of their facilities.
The training on Feb. 28 at the Los Angeles City Hall was hosted in part by the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. By working together in genuine partnership, the DHS said it hopes to empower communities to effectively engage government and draw upon available resources.
The presentation by the DHS Nonprofit Security Grant Program informed institutions how to apply for funding support for target-hardening activities, such as installing security equipment, to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a possible terrorist attack and are located within an eligible urban areas.
The DHS Nonprofit Security Grant Program application submission deadline is April 1, 2012. For more information, click here.
