An informational seminar for the General Child Abuse Neglect Prevention Program Application will be held Friday, January 15, 2010 from 10 a.m. – 12 noon at the Truman State Office Building, 301 West High Street, Room 492, Jefferson City.
In a separate application process, CTF is soliciting up to two new Community Based Child Abuse Prevention (CBCAP) sites under the CBCAP federal grant program. An informational seminar for the CBCAP Federal Grant Program Application only will be held Friday, January 22, 2010 10 a.m. – 12 noon at the Truman State Office Building, 301 West High Street, Room 850, Jefferson City.
The CBCAP (federal grant) Program in Missouri is specifically designed to help communities develop a model integrated system for delivering health, family support and social services to children and families in order to improve outcomes, reduce costs, maximize resources, improve efficiency and ultimately reduce the risks of child abuse and neglect. Through incorporating a lead agency concept, each CBCAP site works to develop a more efficient and coordinated way of working with families to reduce duplication of existing services and maximize the resources of public and private providers. Community collaborations and partnerships are encouraged to apply.
