What's New

Applications are now being accepted for schools to join Cohort 4 of the BPEG program! 

BPEG Program Cohort 4 Application

 

The Colorado Department of Education is now accepting applications from districts (on behalf of a school or group of schools), the Charter School Institute, Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), and facility schools for the fourth grant cycle of the School Bullying Prevention and Education Grant (BPEG) program. Due to the limited funding for this opportunity, only schools that have not previously participated as a BPEG program grantee are eligible. A maximum of two schools may be included in each application. Applicants may request funding for up to $35,000 per school, per year for a maximum of $70,000 per applicant. For complete details, including a three-year implementation guide, please download the BPEG Request for Applications document. All application materials must be submitted through the online application form which you can find above.
