Alaska Department of Education and Early Development Announces
Suicide Awareness, Prevention, and Postvention Grant Opportunity
The Department of Education and Early Development has announced a competitive Suicide Awareness, Prevention & Postvention grant opportunity. The purpose of the Suicide Awareness, Prevention & Postvention (SAPP) grant is to support schools implementing programs, practices, and policies that related to the State Suicide Prevention Plan Goals and Strategies.
This is a competitive grant. The Department of Education and Early Development intends to award up to four (4) grants of a maximum of $25,000 per year, if state funding is made available. Only Alaska school districts are eligible to apply.
The Department of Education and Early development will only fund projects that primarily serve at risk students as demonstrated by Youth Risk Behavior Survey data and regional suicide demographics. Priority will be given to projects that will serve at risk students in alternative schools, correctional facilities, and regions that have historically had high suicide rates as reported by the State of Alaska Epidemiology Section.
If you have any questions concerning the program or the application process, please feel free to contact Sharon Fishel, 465-6523 or firstname.lastname@example.org
