Crisis prevention and intervention in public schools is important, but most districts have limited resources. The Department of Education's Readiness and Emergency Management in Schools (REMS) grant program offers grant funding to public school districts to assist with emergency preparedness efforts.
REMS is a competitive grant program, with a success rate of approximately between 25% and 33%. Our free article Is REMS Right for You? is designed to help districts determine if they are prepared to compete for a REMS grant.
