Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Wednesday came to the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns & Rockaway in Lawrence to announce awards under a state grant that makes $25 million available to enhance security at nonpublic schools and community centers.
The program allocates $50,000 grants — and as much as $150,000 if a school has three campuses — that can be used for exterior “hardening” of a facility against the threat of attack, physical security enhancements, and/or training.
The governor’s office credited Teach NYS with helping created the $25 million competitive grant program as part of the 2017 adopted State budget.
