2022 STOP Solicitation

The Students, Teachers, Officers Preventing (STOP) School Violence Grant Program is designed to improve K-12 school security by providing students and teachers with the tools they need to recognize, respond quickly to, and help prevent acts of violence and ensure a positive school climate. The STOP School Violence Act of 2018 gave the Department of Justice the authority to provide awards to grantees to implement evidence-based school safety programs and technology.

These awards are provided through the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), and Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).
