Foundation / Corporation
New Jersey Child Assault Prevention (NJCAP)
Grants to New Jersey PreK-12 schools to implement programs that prevent bullying and assault, enhance the school atmosphere, and strengthen families. Funding is intended to support programs targeting elementary school students (preK, kindergarten, and grades 1-6), teens (grades 7-12), and students with special needs and intellectual disabilities.
School districts which choose to nominate themselves will agree to have CAP County Coordinator and CAP Facilitators implement the CAP programs according to the design of the International Center for Assault Prevention. For a detailed description of the meetings and workshops included in this design, see https://njcap.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Elementary-Teen-SN-application-2019-2020-1.pdf#page=6.

There are three applications available under this grant program: Elementary CAP Program, Teen CAP Program, and Special Needs CAP Program.
Districts will receive written notification of their acceptance within three months of the deadline date for submission of the grant application. Districts not selected due to limited funding will be put on a waiting list.
In order to maximize funds, each district is requested to provide a minimum contribution of 30% of the total cost of implementation. The district match may only be waived if there is a demonstrable financial need, eligibility for urban aide funding or other related factors. In these circumstances, a waiver letter on school district letterhead from the Chief School Administrator, must accompany this application. Exemption requests will not be approved without the waiver letter.
Depending on availability of funds, districts may be responsible for additional funding.
