Today, US Senators Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin and Congressman Steny H. Hoyer, Dutch Ruppersberger, John Sarbanes, Kwesi Mphum, Anthony G. Brown, Jamie B. Raskin and David Trone (all D-MD) announced $10,691,398 to enhance security measures at local religious and nonprofit community organizations across the state. This federal funding is provided by the US Department of Homeland Security’s Non-Profit Security Grant Program (NSGP), which lawmakers fought to provide a $70 million funding increase for the fiscal year 2022 appropriations bill. The program provides support for physical security improvements and training to religious nonprofits in response to an increase in religiously motivated attacks on religious communities across the country.

“Religious freedom is a fundamental freedom protected by our Constitution, but an increase in hate attacks against religious communities threatens this freedom in Maryland and across the country. We fought for these investments so that our faith-based organizations can ensure the protection and safety of their members. Team Maryland will continue to work with our faith organizations to secure more resources so all Marylanders can fearlessly worship as they choose.” MLA said.
