Purpose

This program provides support to Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) through membership, accreditation, and sub-grant services in order to provide a coordinated response to victims of child abuse through multidisciplinary teams involved in the intervention, prevention, prosecution, and investigation systems that respond to child abuse and neglect cases. A priority is the growth of accredited CACs in rural and tribal communities.

There are 4 categories of funding. Each category requires a separate application.

  • Category 1: CAC Membership and Accreditation Program - operate a national membership and accreditation program for CACs, multidisciplinary teams, and professionals
  • Category 2: CAC National Sub-grant Program - operate a national sub-grant program to support local CACs, state chapters, and multidisciplinary teams that provide a coordinated investigation and comprehensive response to child abuse
  • Category 3: CAC National Sub-grant Program for Victims of Child Pornography - operate a national sub-grant program to support local CACs, state chapters, and multidisciplinary teams that provide a coordinated investigation and comprehensive response to child abuse, specifically to provide services and improve the response to children who are victims of child pornography, including those victims of child pornography who are also victims of commercial sex trafficking
  • Category 4: CAC Military Partnership Pilot Project - collaborate with military installations to explore ways in which the CAC model can be leveraged to help military installations address cases of child abuse and will support a pilot project that supports local CACs to identify, develop, and operationalize best practices

Goals, objectives, and deliverables for each category are listed in the application instructions.
