Project ChildSafe Fact Sheet
Project ChildSafe is a nationwide educational program that promotes the safe storage of rearms in the home. The program raises awareness about firearm safety by distributing gun locks and educational material to gun owners.
For years, Project ChildSafe was a component of "Project Safe Neighborhoods," a federal gun violence-prevention initiative, and was supported by grants from the U.S. Department of Justice with additional funding from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). In 2015, NSSF was awarded a $2.4 million grant by the U.S. Department of Justice. The funds from this cooperative agreement will go toward reaching more people about the importance of rearm safety, as well as providing safety kits, including a gun lock, in Project ChildSafe Communities throughout the country, to encourage responsible rearm storage and help reduce rearm accidents, theft and misuse.

- Project ChildSafe has partnered with 15,000 law enforcement agencies in communities across the country.
- Project ChildSafe has the support of more than 1,200 industry organizations, and works cooperatively with state sh and wildlife agencies across the U.S. to promote safe rearm handling and storage.
