CJA Three Year Assessment

Every three years, the CJA Task Force must undertake a comprehensive review and evaluation of how the State responds to child maltreatment and make training and policy recommendations for improvements in child protection systems. The Task Force has completed its current assessment and identified several priorities to direct the use of CJA funding in the coming years. A copy of the report is located at this link: CJA Assessment Report.
