SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Full Text of Announcement I. Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The Project Prevent grant program provides grants to local educational agencies (LEAs) to increase their capacity to help schools in communities with pervasive violence to better address the needs of affected students and to break the cycle of violence in those communities. Background: Children’s exposure to violence, whether as victims or witnesses, is often associated with longterm physical, psychological, and emotional harms. These harms include, among others, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic disorders; failing or having difficulty in school; and delinquency or criminal behavior, including violent acts.1 In December 2018, the Federal Commission on School Safety (FCSS) released its final report.2 The report offers several recommendations for States, local communities, and the Federal government to improve school safety. The Project Prevent grant program supports activities directly linked with recommendations identified in the FCSS. Under this program, grantees may use funds to address some of those FCSS recommendations in their local districts as they develop approaches to improving school engagement, school safety, and the school environment for all students. Project Prevent grants will enable LEAs to increase their capacity to identify, assess, and serve students exposed to pervasive violence, helping LEAS to offer affected students mental health services for trauma or anxiety; support conflict resolution programs; and implement other school–based violence prevention strategies in order to reduce the likelihood that these students will later commit violent acts. Priorities: This competition includes one absolute priority and two competitive preference priorities. We are establishing the absolute priority and Competitive Preference Priority 1 for the FY 2019 grant competition and any subsequent year in which we make awards from the list of unfunded 1 https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/ojjdp/ 227744.pdf. 2 https://www2.ed.gov/documents/school-safety/ school-safety-report.pdf.
