ALERT: 2-week extension: 4/8/2020
This solicitation provides funding to address the needs of child victims and their families in Alaska through a multidisciplinary team response to child abuse cases.
Because of the rural nature of Alaska, there are many unique needs and challenges when it comes to the investigative response to cases of child abuse and providing the necessary treatment services for victims. Alaska has developed and is using the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) model to respond to cases of serious physical and sexual child abuse. These CACs exist in strategic locations throughout the state; however, there is a need for further coverage and enhancement of services offered by these CACs.
