As K-12 schools across the country grapple with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that grant writing may not be top of mind. But for school safety leaders, this funding presents a unique opportunity to invest in critical emergency communication technology for your school district. Applications for the COPS School Violence Prevention Program and the STOP School Violence Act grants have now been extended, giving your school a chance to apply for funding. 

Join Rave Mobile Safety and Resource Associates for an informative webinar on these federal grants and how your school can receive this critical funding. 

Attendees will learn:

  • Overview of both the COPS and STOP school safety grants
  • Who is eligible to apply and what are the requirements
  • Deadlines and available funding options
  • School safety technology that qualifies
