Vice President Kamala Harris has a plan help HBCU's out, who recently have had bomb threats

On Wednesday, Madam Vice President Kamala Harris announced a funding plan at an event at the White House, which would help out HBCU''s, who need increased security and a bigger budget with helping students out, who deal with mental health. Recently, there have been schools that had to postpone their learning, because of a bomb threat and the vice president decided enough was enough. The administration put together a funding plan, which was called Project School Emergency Response to Violence (SERV) program and HBCU's who experienced recent bomb threats can apply for the grant.

"These grant funds are from the Project School Emergency Response to Violence (Project SERV) program at ED. Project SERV provides short-term, immediate funding for local educational agencies and institutions of higher education that have experienced a violent or traumatic incident to assist in restoring a safe environment conducive to learning. ED will work with the HBCUs that have received recent bomb threats to determine if Project SERV can help get funds to their campuses for immediate needs, such as targeted mental health resources or enhanced security, to restore the learning environment on their campuses. ED is able to provide this funding to HBCUs to ensure students feel safe on their campuses. ED staff will work with each HBCU to help determine their specific immediate needs. Awards typically range from $50,000 to $150,000 per school, said Harris."

The vice president finished her speech with telling everyone that unity and love is the way to go.
