Top Assess Your Community's Readiness for an SS/HS Grant

Promoting safe and healthy environments in which America’s children can learn and develop is the overarching goal of the SS/HS Initiative. Violence and substance abuse in schools compromise the educational climate and endanger teachers and students.

Therefore, the U.S. Departments of Education, Health and Human Services and Justice are collaborating to ensure that federal funding is channeled to schools and communities that can work together to provide comprehensive educational, mental health, social, law enforcement and juvenile justice system services that promote healthy child development and safe, disciplined, drug-free school environments.

Take this interactive assessment to find out if your community is ready to apply for an SS/HS grant. By taking this assessment, you also will learn more about the key factors of a successful SS/HS initiative.
