Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP)

FY24 NSGP Application and Astra Q&A Calls

The next calls will take place on May 20th, and May 24th. You will have the opportunity to ask questions on the Astra system and general questions about the Nonprofit Security Grant Program.

Interested in applying and have questions? First, read through all materials available on this site. Due to the overwhelming interest and the fact that we manage multiple grant programs, we have limited capacity to respond to questions individually. Instead, we have started scheduling Q&A sessions to answer questions from multiple applicants at once. Watch this page and your Astra announcement emails for more information.

The FY24 Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) was released on April 16th!
