(LifeSiteNews) — Amidst the ongoing violence against pro-life pregnancy centers across the country, victimized groups can apply for a Nonprofit Security Grant to fund additional security measures. 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) offers a program for nonprofit groups which are potential targets for terrorists. 

“This grant provides funding support for target hardening and other physical security enhancements and activities to nonprofit organizations that are at a high risk of terrorist attack,” reads its description on the FEMA website. 

The Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) is a function of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Organizations eligible for the award must be verified as a 501(c)3 agency and identified by the Secretary of DHS as a group “at high risk of a terrorist attack.” 

In addition to strengthening security at nonprofit locations, the program “also seeks to integrate the preparedness activities of nonprofit organizations with broader state and local preparedness efforts”, according to the Homeland Security Grants website.

Funding could be used to cover costs of renovations, training, and maintenance efforts to increase security. 

The DHS has identified vulnerable and soft targets as one main area of concern for the 2022 fiscal year, as outlined in the summary of the awards for which nonprofit organizations can apply. 

The funding for the program is divided among three groups. NSGP-Urban Areas receive up to $125 million to be distributed. State areas receive the same amount to be granted to applicants who do not fall under the DHS Urban Area group. Community Project Funding (CPF) has a maximum amount of $150 thousand. The program lasts 36 months, beginning September 1, 2022. Further details are outlined in the Preparedness Grants Manual

At a time of global instability, nuclear tensions and war in Europe, the US Armed Forces have embarrassed themselves by taking a time-out to promote "Pride Month" among the watching world.

This wrongheaded preoccupation with the LGBT ideology across society is weakening our country in a number of ways, not least as it undermines the bedrock of society - the family.

It's time to tell the Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, that we have had enough LGBT propaganda in the armed forces.

SIGN the petition - remind the Secretary of Defense that "Pride Month" only makes us weaker.

Marking the start of Gay Pride Month this week, the US Marines tweeted an image of a military helmet with 6 bullets in LGBT rainbow colors and the words "ready to serve" written on it.

Many responses highlighted the foolishness of an army, who wish to be feared, promoting such ideologies.

This comparison of recruitment videos from the Chinese, Russian and US armies shows how the LGBT ideology has infiltrated our country and taken military focus away from strength on the battlefield. 

How can the U.S. be respected as a super-power by our enemies if we continue to make our armed forces more effeminate, being prouder of the rainbow flag than the Stars and Stripes? 

The woke agenda of normalizing LGBT behaviors among children, adults and the armed forces is a war on reality, as more and more young people find themselves confused about their gender, their attractions, and even what the purpose of sex is. 

To understand how pervasive the LGBT ideology is, consider this: only 1.3% of those born before 1946 identified as LGBT in March 2021, compared to a whopping 15% of young people born between 1997-2002.

Mainstream media, educational institutions, politicians, and even some of the armed forces are conditioning the public to believe this is normal and healthy - it's not.

While all people must be respected, not all behaviors should be celebrated or condoned, lest society become decadent, degenerate and too selfish to make sacrifices.

SIGN the petition to remind the Secretary of Defense that he serves the Stars and Stripes, not the rainbow flag.

The need for virtue both in society and the armed forces is great, in order to strengthen this country's ability to choose what is good and defend it. 

In choosing to promote sexual behaviors and gender identities that are not based in nature, the armed forces have chosen vice instead of virtue.

Promoting the sexual revolution and other fashionable trends will have consequences, one of them being the decline of true and good men and women willing to stand by their families, their country and their flag during times of hardship.

Tell the Secretary of Defense that time-tested values matter, and the LGBT ideology should not be promoted.

Thank you for taking the time to sign our petition.

According to the Secure Community Network, the idea to offer security support for nonprofit groups was first introduced to Congress in 2001 by The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA). The JFNA and Secure Community Network (SCN) worked together to start a Congressional education campaign in 2003. A year later, the NSGP was officially launched and remains an active function of the DHS today. 

The SCN website lists the groups eligible for funding as “nonprofit organizations determined to be at high risk of a terrorist attack due to their ideology, beliefs, or mission”.  

In the light of the pending announcement on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case and following the Supreme Court leak in May, pro-life pregnancy centers have been the victims of domestic terrorists. The violence is expected to continue following the official decision.

Pro-life centers may find financial support to institute more thorough security measures through the Nonprofit Security Grant Program. 

Deadlines are inconsistent across different locations. State Administrative Agency (SAA) contact information can be found at the FEMA website along with the following steps in the application process.
