The instructions for the school safety grant opportunity will be available on Monday, July 16, on the Minnesota Department of Education’s (MDE) Grants Page.

Grants may be used to predesign, design, construct, furnish, and equip school facilities for improvements related to violence prevention and facility security for a qualifying school building. This includes renovating and expanding existing buildings and facilities. The grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis as delineated in the grant instructions.

Further information on specific criteria for the grant, an outline of how MDE will award projects, and how to apply will be available in the instructions.

An informational webinar will be held on Tuesday, July 24. Login information for that webinar will be located in the grant instructions.

MDE will accept applications starting on Wednesday, August 29, through Survey Gizmo. The link will also be available on the MDE Grants Page, but not until the application date.
