Local Jewish Organizations Receive Almost $600K in Federal Security Grants

The Giving Coast

With the help of The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee and its partnership with Secure Community Network (SCN), six local Jewish organizations have received substantial grants from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency for security enhancements. Jewish Community Security Director, Jeff Solomon, who is SCN’s representative locally, was able to help facilitate the grant process. “I first conducted threat and vulnerability risk assessments at each of the organizations.  I helped them create security committees and provided numerous grant training webinars to help them apply for the grants. I was happy to use all of the SCN resources available to facilitate the grant process.”

The grants were part of the Nonprofit Security Grant Program which provided $180 million for target hardening and other physical security enhancements and activities to nonprofits around the country that are at a high risk of a terrorist attack.  Of that amount, $2.7 million was provided to 50 organizations in Florida that are located in non-urban, rural areas such as Sarasota-Manatee.
