$1 Million in Federal Grants Available to Public and Nonprofit Groups in Upper Peninsula to Develop Children’s Advocacy Centers

May 23, 2018

Lansing, MI – Public and nonprofit organizations in the Upper Peninsula will be able to apply for $1 million in federal grants to develop a children’s advocacy center (CAC), the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) announced today.

The MDHHS Division of Victim Services has posted its fourth of five Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) funding. MDHHS will award three-year U.S. Department of Justice grants of $50,000 to $1 million.

CAC’s are child-focused, community-based programs with representatives from many disciplines working together to effectively investigate, prosecute and treat child abuse. When a child discloses abuse, instead of traveling from agency to agency recounting their abuse multiple times, the child is brought to a friendly, neutral facility where their needs come first. Agencies involved in the investigation convene at the CAC where they can hear the child tell their story one time and where they can share information amongst themselves and determine the next course of action.Read the rest
