School Bullying Prevention and Education Grant Program

What's New

It is anticipated that the Request for Proposals (RFP) for the second cohort of BPEG grantees will be released in September. Updates will be provided on this website as the RFP release date gets closer. 


The Colorado School Bullying Prevention and Education Grant Program (BPEG) is authorized by C.R.S. 22-93-101 to provide funding to reduce the frequency of bullying incidents. This includes:

  1. Implementing evidence-based bullying prevention practices with fidelity;
  2. Family and community involvement in school bullying prevention strategies; and
  3. Adopting specific policies concerning bullying education and prevention.

A competitive grants process is used to select all grantees. The first cohort of grantees was selected in 2016 and will receive grant funding through the 2018-2019 school year. 


Congratulations to the inaugural cohort of grantees! In total, 14 districts have been received awards to distribute funds to 72 schools across 5 regions of the state. To view all grantee districts and schools, please visit our grantees page
