The Indiana Homeland Security Foundation is awarding grants to assist local public safety agencies throughout the state. More than $175,000 will be distributed to 48 agencies in 36 counties to help with critical needs.
Recipients of the grants include local fire departments, emergency medical services, law enforcement and emergency management agencies throughout all 10 Indiana Department of Homeland Security districts. Each recipient will net up to $4,000.
"These grants demonstrate Indiana’s commitment to the safety and security of its citizens," said Governor Mike Pence. "These funds and this program are saving Hoosier lives. They allow public safety agencies to purchase equipment that support daily operations and enhance their abilities to provide lifesaving responses. This administration is proud to continue to partner with our local safety officials to prioritize the well being of Hoosiers."
Pence’s office says eligible projects for which the grant funds can be used include:
- Equipping emergency responders with personal protective equipment;
- Acquiring equipment for use by emergency responders;
- Providing radios and technology equipment; and
- Training for emergency responders
