Grants of up to $5,000 to West Virginia nonprofits, community-based organizations, schools, government agencies, and faith-based organizations for child-abuse prevention programs that instill protective factors in families with children, ages 0 to 8. December 22, 2016 is the deadline to submit a letter of intent.

Proposals may be submitted in two categories:

Category A: Projects that engage new partners and/or take a “place-based” approach - those that seek to leverage resources in the community and bring together partners from multiple sectors (early childhood, businesses, faith-based, schools, health providers, early intervention, child welfare, mental health, etc.) that touch the lives of children and families – working toward a common purpose that strategically strengthens the presence of Protective Factors in families, in one or more cities, counties or localities.

Category B: Projects that take a “program-based approach” - those that seek modest funding to strategically build upon “everyday actions” under a single program or organization that increase the presence of Protective Factors in families with young children, whether it be center/school-based, family child care, home visiting, or community-based programs such as family resource centers.

Funding is intended for programs that use the Strengthening Families Protective Factors Framework. See Pre-Application Information for the link.

The protective factors to be taught are:

- Parental resilience
- Social connections
- Knowledge of parenting and child development
- Concrete support in times of need
- Social and emotional competence
