STEP Chapter from the 2016 Biennial Report to Congress
Read about program accomplishments from July 2013 - June 2015 and hear from grantees in their own words.
STEP grant funding has allowed us to make tremendous strides toward preventing and effectively addressing physical and sexual violence within the Lakewood City School District. In previous reporting periods we discussed developing and implementing policy, training all secondary level staff, reaching thousands of students with education and awareness efforts, and working with parents and community members to encourage a deeper understanding of power-based violence. All of these aforementioned efforts were led and carried out by STEP grant- funded staff, which would otherwise not have been possible without this funding.
