September 12th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

The Moore-Miller Administration has announced more than $15.9 million will be awarded to 118 faith-based and non-profit organizations to protect against hate crimes.   Funding from the federal nonprofit security grant program can be used by the groups to bolster resiliency and security measures, including personnel, security equipment, and security-related planning, exercises, and training. The grants add to a series of administration initiatives to prevent hate crimes to faith-based groups including synagogues, mosques, churches, schools and community centers. Locally, both Lighthouse Christian Academy and Our Lady of the Mountains Parish received grant funding.
