Washington DC – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, Chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing & Insurance, today voiced his support of local schools applying for Wisconsin’s School Safety Grant Initiative. Attorney General Brad Schimel announced the opening of Wisconsin’s $100 million School Safety Grant Initiative. K-12 schools, both public and private, are encouraged to apply for the grants, which will be awarded starting in June.
“Safety and security for our nation’s children should be our easiest policy decision as lawmakers at both the state and federal level,” said Congressman Duffy. “That’s why I recently requested at least $5 billion to secure every K-12 school in the United States, and why I’m thankful for the grant program that Governor Walker and Attorney General Schimel have created. I encourage our schools in central, northern, and western Wisconsin to apply for these grants, and they should reach out to my office for any additional assistance. Working together, we can ensure that Wisconsin schools have the resources to keep our kids safe.”
