Elevating School Safety in Connecticut

How Mutualink’s Technology Has Helped Schools

Take Advantage Of Connecticut State Funding For School Safety

Connecticut has taken a proactive approach to school safety through the implementation of the Multi-Media School Security Grant Program (MMSSGP). Governor Ned Lamont and the Connecticut General Assembly have allocated substantial resources to this program, emphasizing the state’s commitment to fostering secure and resilient educational environments.

The MMSSGP is a cornerstone of Connecticut’s School Security and Safety Plan, providing critical funding for schools to enhance their security infrastructure. Aimed at addressing a variety of safety needs, the grant can be utilized for improved physical security measures, including perimeter control, access control, surveillance systems, and other essential enhancements. As Connecticut prioritizes the safety and well-being of its students, Mutualink stands ready to assist educational institutions in preparing comprehensive grant applications tailored to the unique requirements of the Multi-Media School Security Grant Program. Together, we can help your school secure the grants it needs to enhance the safety of your students and staff.
