On January 5, 2016, Local Law 2 of 2016 was enacted which empowers the Mayor of the City of New York to authorize a program to reimburse qualifying nonpublic schools for the cost of procuring certain security services. The Mayor designated the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) as the Law’s administering agency, through the Division of Fiscal & Business Management (FBM). FBM is responsible for managing all aspects of the Citywide initiative, including but not limited to the processing of applications for new schools, re-certifications for existing schools, annual budgets, invoices for reimbursements, and conducting periodic training seminars.
Note: the 2020-2021 application period opened on March 2, 2020 and will close on May 15, 2020 at 5:00 pm EST.

We ask that schools RSVP immediately as bandwidth capacity is limited and there will only be three webinars since the April 7, 2020 session has been canceled. Attendees will receive the access code and password via email the day before their scheduled webinar.
As space is limited, we can only accommodate two representatives from each school.
