Colorado Nonprofit Security Grant Program
The act creates the Colorado nonprofit security grant program to provide money to qualified nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack and that applied for, but did not receive, a grant from the federal nonprofit security grant program. Grant recipients may use the money for the following security-related activities:
- The installation of security equipment on real property owned or leased by the nonprofit organization;
- Security-related planning, exercises, training, and contracted security personnel;
- New or existing infrastructure; except that priority must be given to existing infrastructure projects; or
- Any other approved security enhancements.
The act appropriates $500,000 from the general fund to the department of public safety for use by the division of homeland security and emergency management.
