Two Connecticut JCCs to benefit from school security grant
By Stacey Dresner
HARTFORD – With the recent passing of Connecticut Senate Bill 1014, the Jewish community centers in West Hartford and Woodbridge will soon be able to access $1 million in state grants as reimbursement for the cost of increasing their security.
An amendment to Bill 1014 – which deals with revisions and additions to education statutes – asked that private schools be given an extension in using a $1 million portion of $10 million in funding from a state School Security Grant program that would otherwise have expired by June 30 of this year. That deadline has now been extended to June 30, 2018.
