Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreements to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, for-profits, Tribes, IHEs, and agencies for initiatives to address violence in schools. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to reduce the incidence of school violence through improved school safety and climate and prevent youth violence, delinquency, and victimization in the targeted community.

The OJJDP FY 2022 Enhancing School Capacity To Address Youth Violence program supports targeted efforts to address youth violence through implementing evidence-based prevention and intervention efforts in a school-based setting (K–12th grade only). The goals of the program are to: (1) reduce the incidence of school violence through improved school safety and climate and (2) prevent youth violence, delinquency, and victimization in the targeted community.

There are two categories of funding available under this solicitation: 

  • Category 1: Project Sites: This program supports the efforts of eligible applicant organizations to develop or enhance their capacity to address youth violence and victimization through school-based programming and interventions targeting student and community needs.
  • Category 2: Training and Technical Assistance: In addition to supporting program implementation and direct service activities, the initiative will fund a training and technical assistance provider to support the Category 1 project sites. 

NOTE: This solicitation is funded under the Students, Teachers, and Officers Preventing School Violence Act of 2018 (or STOP School Violence Act). STOP School Violence Act funds cannot be used for the purchase of target-hardening equipment to secure schools. In addition, these funds cannot be used to pay for armed security officers or school resource officers. Applicants interested in funding for target hardening should see the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) School Violence Prevention Program.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), OJJDP, and the COPS office are all releasing solicitations in FY 2022 with funding supported by the STOP School Violence Act. Applicants should not submit duplicate applications with a similar project design in response to more than one of these DOJ solicitations.
