New Safety and Loss Prevention Grant Allocations

Each year, we reimburse members for hundreds of thousands of dollars in safety and loss prevention purchases—and 2022 is no different! This year, we distributed new Safety and Loss Prevention Grant allocations in March. Notices have gone out to all members via email with their new balance amount.

In addition, as of March 31, Safety and Loss Prevention Grant funds unused five years after their initial allocation have expired.

How Do I Use My Allocated Funds?

Safety and Loss Prevention Grant funds can be used to reimburse up to 50 percent of purchases that improve safety or reduce risk for your organization. You can find the reimbursement form, program details, and a list of purchase ideas on our Safety Grant webpage at csdpool.org/grants.

Special COVID-19 Reimbursement Rate

As part of our continued effort to mitigate the impact of the pandemic, our special COVID-19 reimbursement rate will continue through 2022 and into 2023. Instead of the standard reimbursement rate of up to 50 percent, members can elect to be reimbursed at up to 100 percent of their total purchase cost, as long as the purchase is related directly to COVID-19 prevention.

Examples of approved purchases include sanitizing products, cleaning services, PPE, equipment that facilitates adequate social distancing in the office, and equipment or software that allows employees to work from home. To elect the special rate, complete the COVID-19 Grant Application on our Safety Grant webpage.

Note that like the standard reimbursement, the COVID-19 reimbursement is limited to your district’s current available grant balance.

To obtain your current grant balance, or if you have any additional questions, please email us at info@csdpool.org.
