Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA organization to improve the justice system's response to child neglect and abuse. Applicants are advised to create or verify the required registrations well in advance of the deadline date. Funding is intended for the planning and implementation of a training and technical assistance program to improve the judicial system's handling of child abuse, neglect, and related cases.

The goal of this program is to improve the judicial system’s handling of child abuse, neglect, and related cases, with specific emphasis on the role of the courts in addressing reasonable efforts that can safely avoid unnecessary and unnecessarily prolonged foster care placement.

Objectives

  • Develop a model approach/procedures for coordinating information and services for families involved in court-related child abuse and neglect cases.
  • Develop training and technical assistance that supports this model approach to coordinated case management by the courts.
  • Implement evidence-based practices to improve the courts’ handling of child abuse, neglect, and related cases.
  • Develop and guide administrative improvements in juvenile and family courts.
  • Develop and deliver training and technical assistance to judicial personnel and attorneys in juvenile and family courts, including specialized training on handling families impacted by opioids.
  • Develop and disseminate best practices, innovations, and lessons learned from this model project at the national level.

OJJDP expects that the successful applicant will implement this training and technical assistance model in several demonstration sites across the country. The model should support implementation of best practices, enhanced collaboration, and general improved outcomes in participating jurisdictions. Applicants should also plan to disseminate best practices, innovations, and lessons learned from this project at the national level.
