National School Shield Grant Program – A Closer Look
Grateful school discusses enhancements designed to provide better security for students, all made possible through the National 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.”

“The [National] School Shield grant has made it possible to do in one year what would have taken us five. Thanks so much.”

“The NRA [Foundation] has been very generous in funding these security grants to make our schools safer. The school and community appreciate this as it becomes harder to fund these projects with a tight budget.”
