The Children’s Trust Fund (CTF) has released its grant application for the prevention of child abuse/neglect covering Fiscal Year 2013 (July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2013). CTF anticipates approximately $400,000 available for new (first year) projects and $750,000 available for the continuation of prevention projects entering grant years two – five of the CTF funding cycle.
As Missouri’s Foundation for Child Abuse Prevention, CTF provides grants to community-based agencies and organizations throughout the state that focus on child abuse and neglect prevention by investing in and supporting children and their families. As part of the proposal, applicants must describe how they will incorporate the five protective factors known to prevent or reduce child abuse into their program. Protective factors include parental resilience, social connections, knowledge of parenting and child development, concrete support in times of need, and children’s social and emotional development.
An informational meeting regarding the application will be held Friday, January 20, 2012 from 10 am – Noon in Room 500 of the Truman State Office Building, Jefferson City. The meeting is open to anyone interested in learning more about the grant program and application process. Registration is not required. The Truman Office Building is located at 301 W.
