    The FY 2020 PAHC program primarily supports GOCCP's public safety goal to create a safer Maryland by providing grants to enhance the security of nonprofit organizations against hate crimes. A hate crime is a traditional offense with an added element of bias, commonly categorized as a criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender's bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.” The purpose of this grant fund is to promote safety and security for nonprofit entities with appropriate tax status and with facilities and membership that can be targeted for a hate crime.

    Applicants must:

    • justify the funding request based on the incidence and severity of hate crimes in the applicant's local community (see below for sources for this data);
    • clearly indicate whether funding will be used to support one time security upgrades or ongoing security enhancements, and indicate future sustainability plans for ongoing costs;
    • describe how they intend to work collaboratively with Federal and State agencies and/or local partners as needed;
    • ensure that the proposed security enhancements 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; and
