Letter from the Secretary
SD Department of Education June 2016  

Apply for Homeland Security grant funding by Aug. 1

Applications for Homeland Security grant funding are being accepted until
Aug. 1.

State and local, public and private nonprofit agencies, including public and non-public schools, are eligible to apply.

Funding will be awarded for one-time projects that have a connection to a Homeland Security mission area such as prevention or protection against terrorism threats. In particular, schools may be interested in access control projects such as keyless entry, video entry and Fire Marshal-compliant door locks. Surveillance camera systems are not allowable at this time; grants will focus on basic security measures, such as access control, and funding is limited.

Awards are competitive, and local awards will be based on recommendations of regional review committees. Find more information on the South Dakota Department of Public Safety website: Funding will be available by January 2017. Applicants can call the South Dakota Office of Homeland Security at (605) 773-3450 for technical assistance.
