Quarterback wants to help LEAs with K-9 units

Reminder: Apply for this K9 grant by Aug. 15

If your LEA is in Pittsburgh, PA, or in the city/surrounding area of each regular season away game for the Steelers in the 2019 regular season, then your department is eligible for a special K-9 grant.

The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation, founded by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, welcomes grant inquiries for support until August 15, 2019. The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation will disperse grants to police and fire department K-9 units throughout the U.S. The majority of the grants distributed will help K-9 units to purchase dogs and dog safety vests, but other types of K-9 related needs are considered.
