[GOV] Indiana Homeland Security Foundation Awards More Than $400,000 in Grants to Local Public Safety Agencies

Entry Description

Indianapolis - The Indiana Homeland Security Foundation has approved more than $400,000 in grants to aid public safety agencies statewide.

Awards were given to 112 recipients in 62 counties. Recipients include local fire departments, emergency medical services, law enforcement and emergency management agencies in all 10 IDHS Districts.

The focus of the foundation is to support the future of public safety and to provide grant funding to local agencies for critical needs across Indiana. Grants provide up to $4,000. Eligible projects include:

  • Equipping emergency responders with personal protective equipment;
  • Acquiring equipment for use by emergency responders;
  • Providing radios and technology equipment; and
  • Training for emergency responders.

Examples of items that current grant approvals funded include protective equipment, fire gear, defibrillators, fire hoses, computer and communication equipment, thermal imaging cameras and rescue mannequins.

“Local public safety agencies play a critical role in the safety of Hoosiers across the state,” said Governor Mike Pence. “This grant money allows our first responders to replace and upgrade equipment vital to daily operations. By improving equipment and capabilities, our emergency response personnel statewide will have the tools they need to help keep Hoosiers safe.”

The Indiana Homeland Security Foundation is funded through the purchase of “Secure Indiana” license plates. These funds provide grants to public safety agencies and scholarships to students statewide.

Attached is a list of agencies that were awarded grants from the Indiana Homeland Security Foundation.
