WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Congress approved $19 million for non-profit security for 2011, a program that has mostly benefited Jewish institutions in the past.

The $19 million, identical to 2010's allocation, was included in appropriations approved this week and is part of a congressionally mandated program in place since 2005 that targets institutions that are vulnerable to attack.

In the past, security measures funded included reinforcements for windows, gates and doors, video surveillance, other enhancements, and training.
