Matthew and Camila launch Greenlights Grant Initiative
July 27, 2023
After the tragedy in Uvalde at Robb Elementary School, our founders Matthew and Camila went to Washington to advocate for reforms to reduce gun violence and bolster school safety. This culminated into the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, which included billions in funding for school safety grants to help school districts hire mental health counselors, improve security, and more.
However, it’s been difficult for under-resourced school districts to apply for these grants as the federal grant complex is quite complex and time consuming. They are working to solve this problem.
On Thursday July 20, Matthew launched the Greenlights Grant Initiative aimed at helping school districts across the country, especially high-need, low-capacity school districts, apply for and secure federal school safety grants so their students can study in safe and healthy environments.
