The Indiana Department of Homeland Security announced that it’s now accepting applications for the Secured School Safety Grant (SSSG), a matching state grant dedicated to safety initiatives at Hoosier schools. The grant application is open through Aug. 2.

Public school corporations, accredited non-public schools, charter schools or a coalition of school corporations and/or charter schools applying jointly are eligible to apply for the matching grants of up to $100,000, based on the average daily membership of the school entity. To apply by the Aug. 2 application deadline, schools first must identify a system administrator for the IntelliGrants grant management system and register with the IDHS System Administrator Form. For more information and to begin the application process, schools can visit the IDHS Grants Management website.
