NRA School Shield Grant Program – A Closer Look

Grateful school discusses enhancements designed to provide better security for students, all made possible through the NRA School Shield grant funding program.

“[We are] a rural, high-poverty school district with limited financial means. We have taken proactive security measures to ensure the safety of our students and staff. There were some big items that we needed to address to finalize our safety plan. Our school district was able to complete the safety plan without sacrifice, and it was all made possible by a grant provided by [The NRA Foundation for] the National School Shield. Thank you very much for this grant. It has been a godsend.”

—Grant Recipient in Ohio

“On behalf of the more than 750 families and the surrounding community, please allow me to voice our gratitude for your concern about school safety and the financial assistance for this project.”
