Office of Suicide Prevention Funding Opportunities

The Office of Suicide Prevention is pleased to announce the availability of funds, through Senate Bill 18-272, to enhance comprehensive suicide prevention and crisis response for public schools and school districts. The purpose of this legislation is to provide funding for public schools and school districts to implement comprehensive crisis and suicide prevention strategies, with priority given to public schools or school districts who have not received suicide prevention training previously. In order to ensure a comprehensive suicide prevention approach, this funding announcement requires public school or school district applicants to identify training, school climate, and policy strategies to implement over a three year period.
