Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories states, local governments, IHEs, school districts, tribes, public agencies, and nonprofit organizations to improve school safety. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. This program furthers the Department’s mission by supporting and assisting county, local, territorial, and tribal jurisdictions in improving efforts to reduce violent crime in and around schools.

Eligible applicants may submit one application that includes proposals for one or both of the following areas:

  1. Train school personnel and educate students on preventing school violence against others and themselves to include anti-bullying training. This can also include specialized training for school officials to respond to mental health crises, including when and how to effectively involve mental health professionals.
  2. Develop and implement multidisciplinary threat assessment and/or intervention teams and/or operate technology solutions such as anonymous reporting systems for threats of school violence, including mobile telephone applications, hotlines, websites, or other school safety technology solutions for accurate identification of danger (without resort to discriminatory stereotypes or violating privacy). Threat assessment and/or intervention teams must coordinate with law enforcement agencies, behavioral health specialists, community stakeholders, and school personnel, and must include a memorandum of understanding (MOU).

Applications must ensure that the improvements to be funded under the grant are:

  • Protective of student privacy, as required by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and applicable state privacy laws, and ensure that students are not discriminated against on the basis of race, national origin, disability, religion, or sex;
  • Limited to allow personnel in law enforcement agencies to receive student information from education records only when such disclosure is necessary to protect the health or safety of the student or other individuals (e.g., necessary to prevent school violence);
  • Consistent with a comprehensive approach to preventing school violence and promoting a positive school climate;
  • Transparent so that students, parents/guardians, and community members know what is being done and have the data necessary to monitor its effectiveness and compliance with privacy and non-discrimination requirements; and
  • Individualized to the needs of each school at which those improvements are to be made.
