Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $100,000)

This program furthers the Department's mission by providing grants and cooperative agreements for research and evaluation activities to organizations that OJJDP designates.
The National Academy of Sciences, Board on Children, Youth, and Families will establish a Forum on Promoting Children's Affective, Cognitive, and Behavioral Health (C-CAB Health Forum). The Forum members and participants will engage in dialogue and discussion to connect the prevention, treatment, and implementation sciences with settings where children are seen and cared for, including primary health care, schools, preschools and child care, social service and child welfare, juvenile justice, family court, military, and community based organizations, and to create systems that are effective and affordable in addressing children's needs. The primary goal of the forum is to highlight and address gaps in the science of implementing programs and practices in the service of informing research, policy, and practice. NCA/NCF
