Enhancing School Safety: Optimizing SVPP Grants for Security Technology and Evidence-Based Programs

March 13 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

Join SHI and their partner Verkada, for our next Funding Actualized webinar, where we will provide an in-depth understanding of the School Violence Prevention Program (SVPP) grant. This critical funding tool is designed to improve security at K-12 schools and on school grounds through the implementation of evidence-based school safety programs and innovative technology solutions.
During the webinar, SHI will discuss the SVPP grant and how it can cover up to 75% of the costs for your school safety measures, including:
• Collaboration with law enforcement and the training you can receive to prevent student violence
• Physical deterrents such as metal detectors, locks, and lighting, and how these can be integrated into your safety plan
• Communication with local law enforcement during an emergency
• Additional security improvements that could be made under the SVPP grant
They will also delve into the specific equipment and technology items that are eligible for SVPP funding. These include entry control equipment, alarm systems, improved lighting, communication technology, emergency alerts, identification technology, tracking systems, video surveillance, and GIS software for mapping schools and bus routes.
Whether you’re a school administrator, local government official, a public safety official, or Tribal leader, this webinar will equip you with the knowledge and tools to effectively utilize SVPP grants. Join SHI and learn how to enhance the safety and security of our educational environments.
