The Federal School Safety Clearinghouse team will launch a Grants Finder Tool on SchoolSafety.gov next month. The new feature – part of their continued mission to promote and enhance school safety across the Nation – will feature Federally available school safety-related grant programs and is designed as a decision-making support tool to help schools and districts determine the eligibility and applicability of funding opportunities for their specific needs, challenges, and characteristics.
The new SchoolSafety.gov Grants Finder Tool was developed to help the kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) community more easily find, apply for, and ultimately receive school safety-related funding. The tool will simplify and streamline the Federal funding search process for K-12 schools and districts by housing school safety-related grants in one centralized location, as well as providing school personnel with a variety of ways to search for and access grant opportunities from across the Federal government.
The Grants Finder Tool will offer several easy-to-use features to assist stakeholders in finding funding opportunities, no matter their level of expertise or familiarity with Federal grant programs, including options to take a quiz, search pre-populated lists, or filter grants by specific criteria such as funding agency, application deadline, application level of effort, intended use, and school safety topic. Through the tool, individuals will also have the ability sign up for email alerts notifying them when new grant opportunities are added to the site and to stay informed when the latest Federal funding opportunities become available.
Please stay tuned for an upcoming announcement on the formal launch of the Grants Finder Tool in early February. NSBA is also working with SchoolSafety.gov to provide information and tutorials related to this tool specific to NSBA's membership and CSS community. More information to come.
