PEP Announces New Grant Program

The Public Entities Pool of Ohio (PEP) board is pleased to announce the renewal of the loss control and risk management initiative: the PEP+ Grant!

The PEP+ Grant Initiative is designed to help Members reduce or prevent liability claims and property losses by encouraging all PEP Members to apply for up to $500 in grant money to fund, or partially fund, safety items that will aid them in their loss control or risk management efforts.

Program Details:

The PEP+ Grant Program is only available to PEP Members. All PEP Members are encouraged to participate and apply for a grant during the application period of January 1 through December 31, 2018. Applications that are incomplete or are not submitted within the required time frame may be determined ineligible. Each applicant must be a PEP member both at the time of submission and at the time funds are issued. Approved funds will be issued once PEP membership is verified.

Only qualifying expenses will be considered for the PEP+ Grant funds. Qualified expenses include safety items wherein the primary purpose of the item is the prevention or reduction of liability claims or property losses.

The funds are available for purchases or expenses incurred during the application period.
 
Examples of qualified expenses include, but are not limited to:
    •    Playground surface materials
    •    Safety signage
    •    Safety cones or other hazard warning items
    •    Automated External Defibrillators
    •    Fire extinguishers and
    •    Warning sirens.
 
The PEP+ Grant Program has a brief application that may be found by clicking here or by emailing pepgrantprogram@gmail.com
