School Safety Infrastructure Grants
On Thursday April 19, the Governor held a press conference where he announced his intention to provide 4 million dollars in capital funding for public, private and independent schools for school safety infrastructure. Pending the capital funding approval by the Legislature, the Department of Public Safety, in collaboration with the Agency of Education and the Vermont School Safety Center, has developed the following school safety grant timeline:
- June 1, 2018: Requests for Proposals (RFPs) delivered to schools
- July 1, 2018: Proposals due back to Department of Public Safety
- August 1, 2018: Grants awarded to schools
This will be a competitive grant process and current legislation calls for a maximum grant award of $25,000.00 per school.
For additional information, please see the April 23rd memo from Commissioner Anderson and Acting Secretary Bouchey regarding School Safety Infrastructure grants.
