From July 31 through September 14, 2023, PA DOH will be soliciting applications for the Bullying Prevention and Safe Relationships (BPSR) Program.

The BPSR Program will promote safe and healthy relationship development and the reduction of bullying among 12 through 21-year-old children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). The BPSR Program will support positive social-emotional outcomes through prevention and education, including improved ability to manage emotions and peer relationships. CYSHCN experiences higher rates of abuse and bullying than non-CYSHCN, and this new program aims to address that disparity.

The attached document has more information about the BPSR Program and the Request for Applications (RFA) can be found on the PA eMarketplace here: BPSR PA – eMarketplace (

The PA DOH would also like to request your help in sharing awareness of this opportunity by forwarding this announcement and including it in any newsletters or regular communications sent to your partners, stakeholders, and community.

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact me at or 717-772-2763.
