Gottheimer Announces $1.43 Million in New Security Grants for Religious Institutions and Orgs

U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) announced that 10 organizations throughout New Jersey’s Fifth Congressional District received new Nonprofit Security Grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for Fiscal Year 2022. The $1.43 million in federal investment will provide security for houses of worship, religious schools and community organizations that are at risk of a terrorist attack from homegrown and lone-wolf ISIS-inspired terrorists, white supremacists, and other domestic threats.

“This whole program is about fighting against antisemitism and hate and white supremacy and lone-wolf terror. It is about protecting against anyone who seeks to harm our families,” said Gottheimer, a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security. “This is about making sure that our churches and our synagogues and our mosques are safe, and that religious institutions and freedom, which are so deep at the heart of who we are, are safe.”
