Funding Opportunity: BJA STOP School Violence Prevention and Mental Health Training Program

The STOP School Violence Act is designed to improve school security by providing students and teachers with the tools they need to quickly recognize and respond to violent attacks, mitigate risk exposure, and prevent acts of violence. It provides funding to state, local, and Indian tribal governments to develop threat assessment and crisis intervention teams and anonymous reporting systems designed to identify threats before they materialize, including those that originate from individuals with mental health issues; and for the training of students, school personnel, and local law enforcement officers so that they can partner in preventing violent events from happening.

This solicitation seeks applications that: (a) address the training of school personnel and the education of students to prevent student violence; and/or (b) fund specialized training for school officials responding to related mental health crises.

Deadline to Apply: July 23, 2018.
