The year-long program begins in Feb 2024.

Program Cost: $10,000. 

JEPP will provide grants of $3,000-$5,000 for up to 15 institutions.  

Your organization will be responsible for the balance, between $5,000-$7,000* 

*Organizations that receive a security grant from the State Security Grant or the Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) can apply the grant towards JEPP since it qualifies as training and updating of emergency procedures and protocols.

  • Have a security committee or must pledge to form a committee upon receiving the grant 

  • Commit in writing to the full year of program participation.
