The Access to Visitation Grant Program seeks to ensure accessible and available professional supervised visitation services statewide for low-income families with children whose custody and visitation issues are before the family courts.
The use of the funds in California is limited by state statute to three types of programs:
The recipients of the proposed services should be low-income, separated, separating, divorced, or unmarried parents and their children who are involved in custody and visitation proceedings under the Family Code. Grant funds can only be used to serve noncustodial parents.
The state goals for California’s Access to Visitation Grant Program are to enable parents and children to participate in supervised visitation, education, and group counseling programs—irrespective of the parent’s marital status and whether the parties are currently living separately—and to promote and encourage healthy relationships between noncustodial parents and their children while ensuring the children’s health, safety, and welfare.
