In finding a way to put together the fragmented pieces into intensive, long-term programs, this chapter explores how these efforts can be supported through public and private ventures. Many of the strategies that must be implemented in order to assure Safe Passage are the responsibilities of legislative and administrative bodies. Programs cannot function without financial and policy supports. A summary of the resources that come from the state and federal governmental bodies is also presented. Most of the federal funds flow to states through block grants. States then have some flexibility in determining how to use and distribute the funds within their boundaries. Fewer dollars are disbursed by the federal government via grants directly to local community agencies or schools.
