Capacity Building to Implement Effective CBCAP Programs
The purpose of this FOA is to fund a National Center for Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention to build the capacity of CBCAP grantees (SLAs and tribal and migrant grantees) and their state, local, and tribal partners to implement and maintain effective community-based child abuse prevention programs. Specifically, the Center will support CBCAP grantees to develop, operate, expand, and enhance community-based, family-centered and prevention-focused programs and activities. To effectively strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect, the Center will assist grantees in identifying and implementing programs and activities that are accessible, effective, culturally appropriate, and build upon existing strengths of families and communities. The Center will be grounded with a thorough understanding of the legislative requirements of the CBCAP program (Title II of CAPTA) and gain experience with effective strategies to build capacity of CBCAP grantees to meet these requirements.
Capacity building efforts will be grounded in the Center’s comprehensive knowledge of state and tribal child welfare systems and effective resources that strengthen families, as well as a clear understanding of factors that can increase risk for child abuse and neglect, such as trauma exposure, substance misuse, domestic violence, homelessness and others.
Training and Technical Assistance Approach
The Center will develop and implement a plan to provide T/TA on effective program implementation, systemic intervention, and organizational change as it relates to family strengthening and prevention-focused initiatives and barriers to systemic change, as well as strategies to overcome them.

Recognizing that child welfare cannot achieve this vision alone, CB encourages cross sector collaboration between CBCAP grantees, the courts, other family serving agencies, and non-traditional partners. In addition, youth, parents, caregivers and others with lived experiences, to identify strategies that best support families, strengthen communities and prevent child maltreatment. The Center will play a critical role in building the capacity of CBCAP grantees to develop new and leverage existing interagency collaborative efforts with child welfare and other public and private organizations, including parent leaders and others with lived experience to identify and implement an effective prevention continuum. Moreover, the Center will be a valuable partner in supporting CB in achieving its vision.
