WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies – today announced the Executive Office of the State of Kansas will receive a $6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) through the Phase III Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to be used to support Kansas Law Enforcement.
“Law enforcement officers across our state continue to put on their uniform each day and do their part in keeping our communities safe during COVID-19,” said Sen. Moran. “I urged the DOJ to move quickly to distribute Phase III funding to our first responders, and I am pleased to see they have successfully implemented an expedited awards process that will make certain resources reach Kansas law enforcement who play a critical role in responding to this pandemic.”
