Grants to New Jersey nonprofit organizations to provide new child advocacy centers to meet the needs of abused and neglected children in underserved areas. Questions are due by November 22. The bidder’s conference is scheduled for November 28. Proposals are being solicited for the establishment of free-standing centers in New Jersey in counties that do not presently have a child advocacy center.

Child Advocacy Centers are county-based centers that offer a multidisciplinary approach in providing comprehensive, culturally competent child abuse prevention, intervention and treatment services to children who are victims of child abuse or neglect.

Grants will be one-time funding awarded to agencies or service providers which currently collaborate with the Department’s Division of Child Protection and Permanency (CP&P) to provide support services to children and families under their purview. Applicants must be a county prosecutor’s office or a not for profit corporation, affiliated with a prosecutor’s office, that is duly registered to conduct business within the State of New Jersey.

Child advocacy center services are accessible and tailored to meet the individualized and unique needs of children and families regarding culture, development, and special needs throughout the investigation, intervention, and case management processes.
