The Maine Children's Trust (MCT) is pleased to announce the
2018 - 2019
Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Grants
There is approximately $60,000 available for grants up to $8,000 each. One-half of the awarded amount will be automatically available to grantees the following year for the same program, if selected, subject to successful completion of a year one program as determined by the MCT grant allocations committee.
The grants are to be used to support primary prevention programs (programs and strategies which are available to all families) as well as secondary (targeted) prevention efforts, which target children and families at risk for abuse or neglect. Both of which are intended to stop abuse or neglect BEFORE abuse or neglect ever occur.
We require applicants to submit a "Letter of Intent" to determine if the proposed program offered is to stop abuse or neglect before it occurs and also that it fits with funding priorities of MCT which include: prenatal families, father engagement and support for families with challenging behaviors.
Priorities for the 2018 - 2019 funding cycle include but are not limited to:
Intervention and/or treatment programs will not be funded
