Bullock applauds more than $2M in state grants to improve safety in Philadelphia schools

HARRISBURG, Feb. 27 – In her ongoing effort to ensure safety in schools, state Rep. Donna Bullock, a member of the School Safety and Security Committee, today applauded over $2 million in state grants to support strengthening safety and security provisions in classrooms across Philadelphia.

Bullock, D-Phila., said the funding was made available through the Committee, a subsidiary of Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.

“In the second year of this grant program, the statewide funding demand again far outstripped the available resources. Each school district received a minimum grant amount, and competitive grants were awarded to public school entities and community violence reduction partners,” Bullock said. “I want to thank all the members of the SSSC and the staff at the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency for their diligent work throughout this grant process, as well as our Appropriations Committee staff for their support.”

The grant money is a part of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency’s School Safety and Security Committee approval of $53.7 million in school safety and security grants to 524 school entities throughout the commonwealth.
