Mackenzie Announces School Safety Grants Are Now Available
HARRISBURG – Rep. Ryan Mackenzie (R-Berks/Lehigh) announces that the application period for the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s 2013-2014 Safe Schools Targeted Grants program is underway.

“The one place we should be able to expect children to be safe is in school,” said Mackenzie.  “I applaud the Department of Education for taking school safety seriously, and I encourage local schools and municipalities to explore the grants that have been made available to discover if they might be able to be incorporated into their school safety plans.”

From now through Dec. 6, schools districts may apply for up to $25,000 in funding for programs that address school violence, such as conflict resolution or dispute management programs.

Through Nov. 22, schools districts are also eligible to apply for up to $60,000 to fund a school resource officer or $40,000 for a school police officer for purposes of student protection.

A third grant program is available to municipalities, which have through Nov. 22, to apply for up to $60,000 in funding to have a school resource officer assigned to a nonpublic school.

To apply for any of these grants or to learn more about the Safe Schools Targeted Grants program, please visit and click the “School Safety Grants” link on the homepage.
