    Maryland Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP)


    The FY 2021 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 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 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;
    • Complete all responses requested in the online Grants Management System (GMS)
