Geiss applauds safety grants to area schools

LANSING — Sen. Erika Geiss (D-Taylor) today applauded an investment by the Michigan State Police into schools within her district as part of the MSP’s 2019 Competitive School Safety Grant Program. The program improves the safety and security of students, staff and school buildings by purchasing technology and equipment.

“At a time when our area schools are struggling with so many other financial issues, every little bit helps. I know these schools will be so pleased to receive this money, and I congratulate them on being selected among the many applicants for the program. When parents drop their children off at school, they can only hope for the best for their child’s safety. It is my hope that receiving these grants will give parents, educators and administrators a little more peace of mind.”

MSP awarded grants to public school districts, non-public schools, public charter schools and intermediate school districts/regional education service agencies, including:

There were two types of program grants awarded — program area one, with no match requirement, and program area two, which does have a match requirement. A full list of schools and grant amounts can be found on the Michigan State Police website.
