Upcoming Audio conference on violence prevention initiatives for schools
Children & Youth Funding Report announces an important teleconference on Thursday, March 21 on new funding for a wide range of violence prevention initiatives for schools at all levels, as well as other public facilities..
By: CD Publications
Despite the impact of sequestration and 2013 budget difficulties, federal funding opportunities focused on school and community safety are still on track -- with several already out and others in the works -- from such agencies as Education, Health & Human Services, Justice, Homeland Security, Agriculture and Labor.
This program, “Funding School and Community Safety,” will offer valuable advice straight from federal officials that can make a key difference in an grantseeker's efforts, and highlight safety-related funding that is often overlooked in other programs.
Plus, with a rebounding economy and rising stock market, private giving presents many opportunities. The teleconference will review some of the best public safety opportunities from both foundation and corporate donors.
Gain Funding Insights From Two Veteran Grants Experts
In this 75-minute briefing by veteran grants consultant Ray Sweeney and grants analyst Frank Klimko, advice and insights will be presented on a number of programs available to those searching for public safety funding..
Here is just some of what will be covered::
• Learn about a wide range of federal/foundation funding sources for violence-prevention, safety planning, and program implementation for community partnerships, nonprofits, schools, for-profits and governments;
• Find out how to tap into invaluable resources and reports highlighting the latest research, strategies, and recommendations from safety experts nationwide.
• Gain ideas and insights on "best practices" -- proven cost-effective approaches that can enhance safety in schools and communities across the county. The focus will be on solutions that can readily be adapted to fit the needs of your own community.
Ample time is included for Q&A and all questions will be thoroughly addressed. An outline of topics covered will be provided upon registration, as well as a comprehensive handout with dozens of URLs for funders and other resources, as well as other handouts to guiding listeners toward new funding opportunities.
