Support Increased funding for Security at Religious Nonprofits
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has administered the Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) since its creation by Congress in 2005.  This program provides grants to nonprofits and houses of worship in order to enhance security through physical security improvements, funding for emergency planning and training, upgrading security systems, and some renovation projects.  Congress provided $90 million for the program last year.
 
In response to attacks on Catholic churches and schools, as well as attacks on the property of other faith groups, the USCCB is joining an interfaith coalition in asking Congress to quadruple the funding to $360 million. 
 
The Church teaches that the government has the duty to foster the conditions in which religion can thrive.  This is a government program that helps protect people of all faiths.  Urge Congress to increase funding to the Nonprofit Security Grant Program today!

For more information, read the backgrounder on the Nonprofit Security Grant Program as well as the letter from an interfaith coalition calling on Congress to increase funding for security grants for houses of worship.
