This bill establishes a three-year "Nonprofit Security Grant Pilot Program" in the Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness to provide grants to eligible nonprofit organizations for the purpose of hiring permanent or temporary security personnel in order reduce vulnerability to threats, attacks, and other violent acts. The United States Department of Homeland Security's Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) provides support for target hardening and other physical security enhancements to eligible nonprofit organizations that are determined to be high risk. However, the NSGP specifically provides that the funding may not be used to expand existing security personnel or to hire temporary security personnel during times of heightened risk. The pilot program established by this bill would operate in tandem with the NSGP to provide grant funding to NSGP eligible nonprofit organizations for the purpose of hiring permanent or temporary security personnel. The maximum grant award per application would be limited to $10,000. Applicants would be permitted to apply in each of the three years of the pilot program. The bill makes an appropriation from the General Fund of $500,000 in each year of the pilot program. Under the bill's provisions, the director is required to submit a report to the Governor and Legislature containing an evaluation of the pilot program, prior to its expiration. The report is to provide the director's opinion as to whether the pilot program should be continued and, if so, recommendations for further improvement, modifications, and implementation.
