    Summary

    The STOP School Violence Act is designed to improve school security by providing students and teachers with the tools they need to recognize, respond quickly to, 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. Under this solicitation, two types of applications will be accepted:
    • Applications specifically for the development and operation of school threat assessment and crisis intervention teams. Under the school threat assessment area this not only includes threat assessments for individuals, but may also include security surveys, crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) training and implementation, and target hardening prevention programs with the intention to limit access to school property to prevent acts of school violence. For the crisis intervention teams, these should include coordination with law enforcement, school officials, and possibly other disciplines from the community.
    • Applications for the development and implementation of technology that addresses anonymous reporting through apps, hotlines, or websites. This may also include apps that can assist school personnel and students during an active shooter incident, to include notification and sharing information with first responders.
    NOTE: No funds awarded under this grant program may be used for the provision of a firearm for any person, or for training in the use of a firearm.
     

    History of Funding

    None is available.

    Additional Information

    Applications to implement a technological solution must provide the capability for teachers, students, and community members to anonymously report information about potential threats against individuals, within a school district or the community in general. The solution should consider existing resources available in the area, new technology, or any combination of the two that can be used to proactively identify threats that would endanger teachers, students, administrators, public safety officers, or members of the community.
