Building State Capacity for Preventing Youth Substance Use and Violence provides a competitive grant to State educational agencies (SEAs) to build and sustain capacity to prevent youth substance use and violence and support collaboration between SEAs and other State agencies that are involved in efforts to prevent these problems. Funds must be used to enhance the capacity of State agencies to support local educational agencies (LEAs) in their efforts to create and sustain a safe and drug-free school environment.
The NH DOE project is based on data from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey and the School Safety Survey which shows that substance abuse and school safety, especially bullying, are extremely important issues in schools and communities today in New Hampshire.
Types of Projects
Projects should: Assist State educational agencies (SEAs) to maintain a State prevention infrastructure, plan strategically for the anticipated change, and build capacity to assist school districts and communities in responding to this change. States can use these resources to help schools and communities build or expand existing prevention coalitions, seek other sources of support, and enhance LEAs prevention strategies to ensure a positive school environment. Funds made available under this program will also be used to build or strengthen existing partnerships across the range of State agencies that are involved with preventing drug use and violence among children and youth.
