With hate crimes on the rise in New York City, protecting religious institutions and the citizens who frequent them is paramount. In response to this trend, Congressman Max Rose, who represents Staten Island and parts of Flatbush, is organizing a workshop to provide information for the Non-Profit Security Grant Program provided by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency).
This grant can include security cameras, personnel, secure locks etc. This grant is available to any non-profit that can demonstrate a credible fear for its security.
Staff from the Department of Homeland Security will be there to discuss the application process and assist in any way they can. Additionally, a New York City Police Department Crime Prevention Officer will be present to discuss security measures and inform attendees on their free security assessments.
For questions, and to RSVP by January 17th, please contact Clio Markman, Brooklyn Borough Director, at [email protected].
WHEN: Tuesday January 21st, 2020 7:00 PM
WHERE: Sephardic Community Center
1901 Ocean Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11223
A second workshop will be held on Staten Island in coming months.
