Course 2: Navigating the STOP Formula Grant Program

Presented from the perspective of an experienced STOP Grant Administrator, this course shares tips, guidance, and suggestions for administering and monitoring your state’s or territory’s STOP Formula Grant. The course was designed especially for Administrators who have been in their position for four years or fewer, but more experienced Administrators may also find it to be a useful item in their toolbox. While it is recommended to take the course from start to finish, it is also possible to take the course non-chronologically. You can stop and restart at any point, and you will be able to pick up where you left off without searching.

You have the option to take the course in either English or Spanish, and optional closed captioning is available in the short video clips that appear throughout the course.

Course Two is different from Course One! In this course, you are able to move at your own pace. The two courses are unrelated and you are able to take them in any order.
