The U.S. Department of State’s Chemical Security Program (CSP) is pleased to offer grants to improve the physical and procedural security of chemical laboratories and facilities. These Chemical Security Improvement Grants (CSIG) contribute to the security of industrial and academic chemical facilities, including their employees and their communities, and aim to prevent the accidental or intentional misuse of chemicals. CSIGs are one-time awards ranging from $2,000 to $30,000 in value with applications accepted on a quarterly basis. To be considered for a security improvement grant, applicants must submit a completed CSIG application form, CSIG budget form and national ID/passport and curriculum vitae (CV)/resume for each person who will be participating in the project.
