Federal Support for School Safety and Security [Updated June 15, 2022]   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Introduction: "In the United States, more than 50 million students are enrolled in public elementary and secondary schools that educate children from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade; nearly 20 million more students attend degree-granting postsecondary institutions. Students' safety and security is a paramount concern of federal, state, and local governments, as well as for school districts, institutions of higher education (IHEs), students' families, and Members of Congress. [...] The ED [U.S. Department of Education ], HHS [U.S. Department of Health and Human Services], DOJ [U.S. Department of Justice], and DHS programs discussed in this report encompass prevention, mitigation and response, or recovery efforts that provide direct or indirect funding for school and campus safety and security initiatives. The program summaries in this report are not comprehensive. In many cases, other Congressional Research Service (CRS) products are referenced as sources for more detailed information about individual programs. This report also provides an overview of federal programs and initiatives that support school safety and security efforts in other ways, such as data collection and technical assistance."
