    Press release by the Office of the Attorney General of the State of New Jersey:

    The Christie Administration announced today the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has awarded funding to the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness (OHSP) for nonprofit organizations under the 2014 Jersey City/Newark Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP). Eighteen New Jersey nonprofit organizations will share in more than $1.1 million in federal grants to improve their physical security. DHS allotted $10 million nationwide for this program, and made awards to hundreds of nonprofits across the country. New Jersey received the fifth highest nonprofit grant total in the nation.

    “Bolstering security measures at these nonprofit organizations located in the UASI area remains a top priority,” said Christopher Rodriguez, Director of the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness. “Grant funds will be used to target-harden these sites, and will improve the prevention, response and recovery capabilities at these locations throughout the UASI area, which in turn enhances the entire State’s resiliency efforts.”

    The grant criteria, established by the U.S. DHS, includes whether the eligible organizations:

    Maintain a site with symbolic value and is a recognized national or historical institution that makes it an attractive target;
    Have a role in responding to or recovering from a terrorist attack;
    Have potential vulnerabilities to attack, especially if documented by a prior risk assessment;
    Have been the subject of an identified and substantiated attack or closely allied with an organization that has been the subject of an attack by a terrorist organization inside or outside the U.S.

    Director Rodriguez said the grant awards, which are up to $75,000 for each organization, must be used for the purchase and installation of physical security equipment or for security-related training for organization personnel.

    Among the recipients of the $75,000 grants are:

    Chabad Lubavitch of Camden & Burlington Counties, located in Cherry Hill, NJ – directed by Rabbi Mendy Mangel.

    Chabad of Medford, NJ – directed by Rabbi Yitzchok Kahan.

    Chabad House-Lubavitch of Central & South New Jersey, located in New Brunswick, NJ – directed by Rabbi Yosef Carlebach.

    Center for Jewish Life, located in Marlboro, NJ – directed by Rabbi Yossi Kanelsky.
