JFS is pleased to announce that the organization has been named a recipient of the Commonwealth Nonprofit Security Grant Program!

The Baker-Polito Administration announced $950,000 in grant awards to 53 faith-based organizations and houses of worship to strengthen on-premises safety and security. These grants will help fund organizations’ safety enhancements to protect staff, attendees, and clients at sites facing potential increased risk of violence.

“In 2018, Massachusetts established the Commonwealth Nonprofit Security Grant Program (CNSGP) to allocate state funding to nonprofit organizations selected through a competitive grants process managed by the Office of Grants and Research (OGR) within the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS). The program annually supports target hardening and other physical security enhancements for locations at high risk for terrorist attacks or hate crimes. To date, the program has provided about $3 million in funding to 124 organizations.”
