Review - HR 8625 Reported in Senate – Nonprofit Security Grant Program

Last month, the Senate Homeland Security ang Governmental Affairs Committee published their report on HR 6825, the Nonprofit Security Grant Program Improvement Act of 2022. The Committee considered the bill in business meeting on August 3rd, 2022, and after amending and adopting substitute language, ordered the bill reported favorably. The revised language modifies the administrative requirement changes made in the House language. The Senate language reduces the House approved funding from $500 million to $360 million per year though 2028.

Moving Forward

With the publication of the Report, this bill is now cleared for consideration by the full Senate. There is a remote possibility that the bill could be considered under the Senate’s unanimous consent process. The bill is not important enough to take up the time necessary for consideration under regular order, particularly in the closing two months of the session. There is a possibility that the bill could be included in the year end spending bill, but that could end up being either the House passed or Senate committee version.
