Subject: School Safety, School Violence, Child/Youth Welfare, Juvenile Justice
Deadline: June 11, 2019

“Among its provisions, the STOP School Violence Act of 2018 authorized BJA to manage a grant program that would support efforts by state, local, and federally-recognized Indian tribes to prevent and reduce school violence.

Specifically, the BJA program will address: (1) training school personnel and students to prevent student violence; (2) development and operation of anonymous reporting systems against threats of school violence, including mobile telephone applications, hotlines, and websites; and (3) development and operation of school threat assessment and crisis intervention teams that may include coordination with law enforcement agencies and school personnel.

In addition, the program may fund specialized training for school officials in intervening and responding to individuals with mental health issues that may impact school safety. This solicitation specifically seeks applications that address the development and operation of school threat assessment and crisis intervention teams and the development of technology for local or regional anonymous reporting systems. This technology may be in the form of an app, hotline, or website. The proposed technology solutions may be those that could be used during an incident to assist in securing the safety of those involved, to include sharing information with first responders.”
