Funding Available for Tribes, Tribal Organizations, and Migrant Programs

2/20/2008:   The U.S. Children's Bureau has announced grants to be awarded to tribes, tribal organizations, and migrant programs for child abuse prevention in fiscal year 2008.

The funds will support effective, comprehensive child abuse prevention activities and family support services, including those that strengthen marriages and reach out to fathers to enhance the lives and ensure the safety and well-being of migrant and Native American children and their families. Such programs may include voluntary home visiting, respite care, parenting education, mutual support, family resource centers, marriage education, and other family support services.

Applicants are encouraged to implement evidence-based and -informed programs and practices. The funds must also be used to support an evaluation of the programs and services funded by the grant. Three grants are expected to be funded for $138,963 per grantee for FY 2008.

Visit the website for the Administration for Children and Families to learn more and apply by May 12, 2008.
