2017-18 Securing Communities Against Hate Crimes Grant Program

New York State, committed to ensuring the safety and equal treatment of all New Yorkers, has launched the Securing Communities Against Hate Crimes Program to boost safety and security at New York's nonpublic schools, day care centers and cultural museums at risk of hate crimes or attacks because of their ideology, beliefs, or mission. In support of this effort, we released a Request for Application for eligible organizations on a statewide basis and anticipate award announcements mid-March. All organizations that applied will be notified by DHSES.
