COLUMBUS (WDTN) – Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Friday that he is extending the deadline for eligible Ohio schools to claim their share of $12 million in grants to pay for school safety programs.
More than 1,700 Ohio schools and school districts qualified for grants totaling between $2,500 and $283.000, depending on school enrollment, but only 63 percent of eligible schools had claimed their funds and about $2.8 million in funding is left unclaimed.
In order to allow more schools to take advantage of the allotments, DeWine is extending the application deadline to November 30.
“As Ohio’s Attorney General, it has always been my mission to support schools in their efforts to protect Ohio’s children,” he said. “I’m extending this deadline because every eligible school is entitled to thousands of dollars to help ensure the safety of its students. I encourage school administrators who have not yet sent in their funding applications to do so right away.”
A list of eligible schools that did not submit an application can be found here.
Administrators with questions should email SchoolSafetyGrants@OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov or call (614) 466-6963.
