HARRISBURG – Rep. Rob Mercuri (R-Allegheny) today commended the investment of more than $850,000 into school safety and mental health support across the 28th Legislative District.

The School Safety and Security Committee (SSSC) under the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) approved $47 million statewide in grants to improve safety and security and mental health support for students and staff in Pennsylvania’s schools. 

“As a member of the House Education Committee, I am pleased to see this investment into protecting our schools and improving mental health support across the Commonwealth,” Mercuri said. “Our students are our future; we must continue to invest in their well-being.” 
The following list includes the public and non-public schools across the district that will receive funding.

   - Blessed Francis Seelos – $75,000.
   - Deer Lakes School District – $157,673. 
   - Eden Christan Academy – $5,000.
   - Hampton Township – $172,629. 
   - North Allegheny – $247,455.
   - Pine Richland – $199,502.

Funds will advance the School Safety and Security Committee’s goal of ensuring all Pennsylvania students can learn in safe, healthy school environments by helping school entities address basic safety needs and mental health services identified in the committee’s recently adopted Revised Baseline Criteria Standards.
