New SchoolSAFE Funding Opportunity from the Colorado House
Consider HB22-1077 just introduced by Representatives Michaelson Jenet and Jodeh, and Senators Priola and Hansen, and assigned to House Committee Public & Behavioral Health & Human Services.
The general assembly declares it is important for Colorado to create a state-funded nonprofit security grant program to ensure that more Colorado-based nonprofit organizations receive grants to complete potentially life-saving projects that thwart off potential terrorist attacks in the future.
Grant recipients may use the money received for security-related activities, including but not limited to, the installation of security equipment on real property owned or leased by the nonprofit organization; security-related planning, exercises, training, and contracted security personnel; or any other security enhancements approved by the division and in accordance with the allowable costs under the federal program.
Colorado receives new additional suicide prevention resources.
Effective January 1, 2022, anyone in need of support can dial 988 for suicide prevention.
