Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Maryland nonprofit organizations, including faith-based organizations, for security improvements. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed a minimum of two weeks prior to the deadline. The purpose of this program is to provide local organizations that have facilities and membership that can be targeted for a hate crime with security enhancements.

These efforts support the Governor's Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services’ objective of developing criminal justice and victim services strategies that are coordinated by developing a culture of collaboration, information sharing, and knowledge transfer between law enforcement, victim services, and communities targeted for hate crimes.

There are two funding categories applicants can apply under:

  • Category A: FY2023 New PAHC Projects - Open to all applicants (new and previous sub-recipients)
  • Category B: FY2022 PAHC Continuation Projects - Open only to FY22 PAHC sub-recipients (Sub-Recipients who were unable to complete their FY22 funded project and had to deobligate funds may apply. The amount can not exceed the deobligated funds).

The FY 2023 PAHC program supports the Office’s objective of developing criminal justice strategies that are coordinated by developing a culture of collaboration, information sharing, and knowledge transfer in this case between law enforcement, victim services, and communities targeted for hate crimes.

Applicants must:

  • Justify the funding request based on the incidence and severity of hate crimes in the applicant’s local community (see below for possible resources for this data);
  • Describe how they intend to work collaboratively with Federal and State agencies and/or local partners as needed;
  • Ensure that the proposed security enhancements are allowable costs (see Section VII, B of the NOFA in Supporting Documents below) and have a direct impact on the problem identified at the time of application;
  • Be willing to share outcomes related to implementation of the funded security enhancements;
  • Describe the successes of previous PAHC funding provided by the Office, as applicable, and if COVID impacted the ability to utilize the funding received;
