October 12, 2018: Minneapolis Public Schools was awarded a total of $2,469,647 in grants by the Minnesota Department of Education to improve school safety. Applications were submitted for all 63 school sites and MPS was awarded grants for 6 locations. The maximum grant amount per school that could be awarded was $500,000. The list below includes the schools and amounts awarded:

FAIR was awarded $420,346
Field was awarded $159,821
Folwell was awarded $500,000
Justice Page was awarded $500,000.00
Lucey Laney was awarded $389,480.00
Lyndale was awarded $500,000.00

Submitted grant applications were assigned a random number by MDE and awarded via a lottery system. All MPS schools had a grant application submitted, however, there was no way in which MPS could designate priority of our applications.

April 12, 2019: Grant information was sent to MDE for grant approval for FAIR, Field, Lucey Lane, and Lyndale. Upon MDE approval, projects will be initiated and a design consultant retained to start the project.
