NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A7852
 
SPONSOR: Byrne
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 54 of the laws of 2019, enact- ing the capital projects budget, in relation to including all religious houses of worship in the safety and security projects for at risk facil- ities grant program   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:: This legislation would expand the eligibility requirements for the Securing Communities against Hate Crimes Grant Program to include all houses of worship.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:: Section 1 of Chapter 54 of the Laws of 2019 is amended to add all houses of worship to parties eligible for the grant.   JUSTIFICATION:: The Securing Communities Against Hate Crimes Grant Program provides nonprofit organizations within the State with funding to help mitigate risk associated with the increased number of hate crimes that have occurred in previous years. Unfortunately, the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services have adopted strict eligibility require- ments that require nonprofits or religious institutions to also provide educational or daycare services that are registered with the Department of Education. As a result, many religious institutions who do not provide these services, or provide daycare programs not registered with DOE, are not eligible to apply for critical funding that would prevent future acts of hate. This legislation seeks to amend this issue by open- ing up eligibility to all house of worship.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:: None to the State.   EFFECTIVE DATE:: Immediately.
