Grant Description
Grants to Kansas nonprofit organizations for operational assistance and programs that support child victims of neglect and abuse and help to prevent child abuse. Funding is intended to provide temporary emergency shelter for victims; assistance and counseling; educational services to reduce the incidence of child abuse. Costs associated with court-appointed special advocate programs will also be supported.

The State Crime Victims’ Assistance Fund for Child Abuse and Neglect (CA) funds programs whose primary function is preventing child abuse and neglect or providing residential services or facilities to victims of child abuse or neglect. The grant funds are to be used for ongoing operating expenses of programs, including court-appointed special advocate programs, providing:

  1. Temporary emergency shelter for victims of child abuse and neglect;
  2. Counseling and assistance to those child victims; or
  3. Educational services directed at reducing the incidence of child abuse and neglect and diminishing its impact on the child victim.

Grants made to programs will be based on the number of persons served by the program and will be made only to programs aimed at preventing child abuse and neglect or providing residential services or facilities to victims of child abuse or neglect.

Through the Grant Program, the Victims Services Division seeks to ensure that Kansas crime victims: 1) are aware of their rights, 2) have their rights protected, 3) are aware of the services available to them, and 4) have access to quality services.
