Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $1,890,000)
Through this program, OJJDP seeks to identify a training provider to develop and implement training on effective responses to child victimization cases for state and local law enforcement, child protection personnel, prosecutors, medical providers, and child advocacy center professionals. Authorized by the Missing Children's Assistance Act of 1984 and Title IV of the Juvenile Delinquency and Prevention Act of 1974, as amended, the Missing and Exploited Children Program is the primary vehicle for building an infrastructure to support the national effort to prevent the abduction and exploitation of our nation's children.
The National District Attorney's Association's National Center for the Prosecution of Child Abuse will provide state-of-the-art curricula and materials and training and technical assistance outreach to those communities and child abuse professionals that need it most. In the 12-month project period, NCPCA will deliver: a training mission; technical assistance support to state and
local agencies and other stakeholders; coordinated special meetings of grantees/practitioners; 23 regional trainings; mechanisms for evaluation and assessment of measurable outcomes; contributions to OJJDP's Web site; and, the development of an overall strategic plan.
