FY2017 Grant Program
The Texas Children's Justice Act is pleased to announce its 2017 Grant Program. CJA is now accepting applications for programs that will fill an identified gap and contribute to the knowledge base in one or more of the current CJA priority areas:
- Multidisciplinary Team Coordination and Response
- Victim Advocacy
- Child Maltreatment Victims with Disabilities or Special Healthcare Needs
- Child Maltreatment-Related Fatalities
- Medical Evaluations for suspected child victims of abuse/neglect
CJA funds should be used for programs to reform State systems and improve processes by which States respond to cases of child abuse and neglect, including child sexual abuse and exploitation and cases of suspected child abuse or neglect related fatalities. CJA funds are to be primarily focused on the front end, intake and investigative piece of child welfare.
The deadline for submitting a grant application is Tuesday, March 22, 2016.
