Santora Announces $75,000 in School Safety Grants
HARRISBURG – Through the School Safety and Security Grant Program, which State Rep. James R. Santora (R-Delaware) supported, $75,000 in grants to help improve school safety were awarded to school districts in the 163rd District.

Haverford, William Penn and Upper Darby school districts each received $25,000.

Eligible uses for the grants include hiring school security officers, purchasing security-related technology, completing safety and security assessments, implementing violence prevention curricula, offering counseling services for students and creating other programs to protect students.

“This first round of funding awarded $25,000 to each school district that applied. I encourage any school district hoping for additional funding to make a formal request, because money is still available for outstanding needs,” Santora said.

Additional funding, which can be used by school districts, intermediate units, area vocational-technical schools, charter schools and private residential rehabilitative institutions that are looking for additional support, will be awarded in the future.

The new program was created as part of a comprehensive school safety bill that was signed into law in June. More than $60 million in new funding was dedicated in the 2018-19 budget to improve school safety.
