HHS Strategic Plan, Fiscal Years 2007–2012 (Strategic Plan). Child Maltreatment

11/22/2015

The Child Abuse State Grant Program plays a key role in the prevention of child abuse and neglect by funding postinvestigative services such as individual counseling, case management, and parent education. The Child Welfare Services program helps State child welfare agencies improve their services with the goal of keeping families together. Grants also are provided to develop and improve education and training programs and resources for child welfare professionals through the Child Welfare Training program and to prevent the abandonment of infants and young children exposed to HIV/AIDS and drugs through the Abandoned Infants Assistance Program. Over the next several years, funds for new regional partnership grants will assist State and local agencies in building cooperative efforts addressing the range of issues presented by families whose substance abuse impairs parenting and places their children at risk. The Independent Living Education and Training Vouchers program provides up to $5,000 for costs associated with college or vocational training for youth ages 16 to 21 in foster care.

Two interagency workgroups focus on the issue of child abuse and neglect and provide settings within which Federal agencies coordinate and collaborate. The first, the Federal Interagency Work Group on Child Abuse and Neglect, led by the Office on Child Abuse and Neglect of ACF/Children’s Bureau, engages ACF, CDC, HRSA, IHS, NIH, and SAMHSA, as well as the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Defense, Interior, Justice, and Labor, State staff, and other partners, in its discussions on child abuse prevention, child welfare, and independent living support services. The group shares information, plans and implements joint activities, makes policy and programmatic recommendations, and works toward establishing complementary agendas in the areas of training, research, legislation, information dissemination, and delivery of services as they relate to the prevention, intervention, and treatment of child abuse and neglect. The second, NIH Neglect Consortium, develops and supports research on child neglect, with support from ACF and the U.S. Department of Education. ACF/Children’s Bureau is working with OD in supporting necessary research to understand the impact of child maltreatment on children and youth with disabilities residing in long-term care facilities and with families (including foster care).
