As Missouri’s foundation for child abuse prevention, the Children’s Trust Fund’s (CTF’s) primary responsibility is to provide grants to community-based agencies and organizations throughout the state that focus on strengthening families and preventing child maltreatment.
Since 1983, CTF has allocated nearly $67.9 million dollars in funding to community organizations statewide for prevention programs and initiatives that benefit Missouri’s children and families. In addition to state funding, CTF administers the federal Community Based Child Abuse Prevention (CBCAP) funding made available through the Administration for Children and Families.
*** In Fiscal Year 2024 (July 1, 2023), CTF began implementing its updated Indirect Cost Policy for Grants & Contracts. Please review the updated policy for your own awareness and to ensure you remain in compliance.
