The Fund shall consist of any moneys appropriated to the Agency for purposes of the Illinois' Not-For-Profit Security Grant Program, a grant program authorized by subsection (g-5) of Section 5 of this Act, to provide funding support for target hardening activities and other physical security enhancements for qualifying not-for-profit organizations that are at high risk of terrorist attack. The Agency is authorized to use moneys appropriated from the Fund to make grants to not-for-profit organizations for target hardening activities, security personnel, and physical security enhancements and for the payment of administrative expenses associated with the Not-For-Profit Security Grant Program, except that, beginning July 1, 2024, the Agency shall not award grants under this Section to those entities whose primary purpose is to provide medical or mental health services. As used in this Section, "target hardening activities" include, but are not limited to, the purchase and installation of security equipment on real property owned or leased by the not-for-profit organization. Grants, gifts, and moneys from any other source, public or private, may also be deposited into the Fund and used for the purposes authorized by this Act.
