Special considerations to Know before Applying

The Secured School Safety Grant is a matching and reimbursement grant. This means that all schools will be required to spend money from their own funds FIRST before receiving grant funding in the form of a reimbursement for expenditures that occur during the period of performance.

ALL schools can apply up to $100,000 in grant funds.

If the school chooses to apply for grant funding it will be required to match the grant funds. Match is calculated based on the school’s ADM and the amount of grant funding requested.

The following are examples based on the school’s ADM. Please only read for your school’s ADM.
