New Safety Grant Allocations Are Here!

We just added over $1 million to the Safety and Loss Prevention Grant Fund. Now is the best time to make some serious purchases for your district, upgrade those old and out-of-date pieces of equipment, or splurge on that training you have always wanted for your team.

Join the hundreds of districts that use our program each year and receive a reimbursement of up to 50% of the cost of qualifying purchases. These purchases must prevent a covered risk, so use your imagination!

Since this program launched, we have allocated more than $6.8 million to members’ accounts, helping pay for renovations, upgrades, purchases, safety equipment, trainings, CSD-sponsored programs, and more.

Here are a few examples of purchases members have made in the past:

  • Fencing and security cameras
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Automatic external defibrillators
  • Cyber vulnerability assessments
  • Anti-virus software
  • Fire policy guidance services from Lexipol
  • Safety training
  • Slip-proof flooring
  • Handrails
  • Fire hose testing
  • ADA-compliance upgrades
  • Training and seminars

To help districts cope with COVID-19, the Pool will open up the current $4.8 million in allocated Safety and Loss Prevention Grant funds to 100% reimbursement for COVID-19 response expenses incurred by the district. Visit our website to apply for this specific reimbursement. Same restrictions apply. This will include but is not limited to: resupply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), disinfecting cleanup expense, and non-reimbursed quarantine expenses incurred by employees as a safety precaution to protect other employees.

Remember, these funds expire after five years if they are not used, so start planning now. There are a few things excluded from the program, but we are happy to answer any questions you may have about potential purchases. Put in your request today on our website.
