Faith-Based Security Advisory Council

The Faith-Based Security Advisory Council (FBSAC) provides organizationally independent, strategic, timely, specific and actionable advice to the Secretary through the Assistant Secretary for Partnership and Engagement whom also serves as the DHS Faith-Based Organization Security Coordinator. The FBSAC provides advice and recommendations to the Secretary and other senior leadership on matters related to protecting houses of worship, preparedness and enhanced coordination with the faith community. FBSAC advice may include:

  • Recommendations for the development of strategies and policies that will further the Department's ability to prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks, major disasters, or other emergencies.
  • Recommendations for improving coordination and sharing of threat and security-related information, internally across the Department, externally across the Federal Government, and among state, local, tribal governments, first responders, the private and non-private sectors, academia, research community, and faith-based organizations.
  • Evaluations of the efficiency and effectiveness of existing security-related programs and initiatives, and how to best leverage available resources, such as FEMA’s Nonprofit Security Grant Program.
