School Hardening Grant Program

The School Hardening Grant program allocates non-recurring funds to school districts to improve the physical security of school buildings based on a security risk assessment required by section 1006.07(6), Florida Statutes and the School Hardening Needs Report.

Hardening projects must conform to the following criteria:

  • Allowable – A fixed capital outlay expenditure (items must be physically attached to school property).
  • Appropriate - Associated with improving the physical safety and security of school buildings.
  • Identifiable - Identified by a security risk assessment as a need (must be listed in the current Florida Safe Schools Assessment Tool [FSSAT] assessment for the school) and the School Hardening Needs Report submitted by the district.
  • Used for items other than code compliance deficiencies.
  • Used in addition to or to augment existing security features.
