Each year the Children’s Trust Fund (CTF) allocates a certain portion of its program budget to fund discretionary projects. Discretionary grant funding is designed to be responsive to low cost prevention projects or needs that individual communities or community groups identify during the course of the year. Such projects might include funding start-up costs for voluntary prevention programs such as home visitation, safe crib/home risk assessment, infant massage, resource mothers mentoring programs, curriculum for a community parenting programs, prevention educational materials for the public, community awareness and training, etc. Requests are limited to a maximum of $5,000 per application.
Current Availability of Funds
Currently CTF is no longer accepting discretionary applications for Fiscal Year 2010 (July 1, 2009 – June 30, 2010) as all available funds have been obligated. Should additional funds become available during the year, notice and the application for discretionary funds will be posted on this page.
