The new law, which passed the US House by voice vote and passed through the Senate via Unanimous Consent, authorizes the Department of Homeland Security’s ‘Nonprofit Security Grant Program’ to issue grant money for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations that are at risk of a terrorist attack.

This grant funding will assist houses of worship to apply for $100,000 grants to be used for things like fencing, cameras, stronger doors, the hiring of security professionals, and security training for key personnel to prevent or protect against attacks.
