Sunday, July 21, 2019

Applications for Indiana’s Secured School Safety Grant, which provides funding to ensure Hoosier schools are safe and secure, are now available.

The grants can be used to hire resource officers, conduct threat assessments, make safety improvements to buildings, and to cover startup costs for active event warning systems to quickly alert emergency responders.

State Representative Wendy McNamara of Evansville says the grants can also be used to provide critical mental health resources in schools.

State Lawmakers recently appropriated an additional $5 million to the fund which totals $19 million. Applications close August 2nd and can be found online at www.in.gov/dha.htm.
