Nevada Department of Education Grant Opportunity for Law Enforcement Youth Mental Health Training
Law enforcement agencies (LEA), schools, and communities are seeking effective ways to support Nevada’s youth in times of crisis. Law enforcement officers play a critical role in responding to calls-for-service for suicide reports and/or conducting welfare checks when it is suspected that a young person/adolescent might be imminent danger. ESSER III funds have been secured to fund any youth mental health training for law enforcement officers and/or the overtime used to participation in youth mental health training.
This request for new funding application is open to all Nevada public school districts and charter schools, law enforcement agencies and community partners.
Goals and Priorities
This request for funding must be used for one of the following activities:
· Enrollment in youth mental health training programs for sworn law enforcement officers.
· Community sponsored youth mental health training programs intended for law enforcement officers as the primary audience.
· Overtime costs associated with the officers attending the training or participating in afterhours training either in person or asynchronous delivery method.
Application Deadline: March 6, 2023
