Norristown, PA – April 14, 2022 – Senator Amanda M. Cappelletti (D-17 Montgomery/Delaware) has announced over $600,000 in Pennsylvania Commission on Crime & Delinquency (PCCD) Non-Profit Security Grant funding awarded to community centers across the seventeenth district.
The PCCD Non-Profit Security Grant Program administers grants to non-profit organizations who principally serve individuals, groups, or institutions that are included within a bias motivation category for single bias hate crime incidents as identified by the FBI’s Hate Crime Statistics Publication. In January, Governor Tom Wolf announced an additional $4.5 million allocated to the program from Pennsylvania’s American Rescue Plan Act funding.
“Whether it’s in school, a place of worship, or a community center, everyone deserves to feel safe,” said Senator Cappelletti. “This funding will financially assist with the necessary modifications each organization needs to provide a safe and functional environment for all who involved. I applaud Governor Wolf’s commitment to invest in the safety and security of our diverse communities.”
