In response to the shooting deaths at Robb Elementary, President Biden has suggested providing grants that would help build a new school and pay for long-term health care needs in the community.

Officials are suggesting that federal funds could be used to raze the Uvalde, Texas, elementary school where 19 students and two teachers were killed in a shooting attack.

Texas state Sen. Ronald Gutierrez said that President Biden, while visiting Uvalde over the weekend, indicated an interest in providing federal money to replace Robb Elementary School, reports NBC News

 Biden is also floating the idea of federal grants to pay for long-term health care needs in the community, Gutierrez said.

“He said, 'I’m not going to leave here, we’re gonna bring resources, we’re gonna look at bringing a federal grant to raze the school,'” Gutierrez said. “Every parent that I’ve talked to doesn’t want to see this school traumatized. Every little kid that I’ve talked to is scared to even go near the school.”
