The GRADD Community Collaboration for Children (CCC) Regional Network is currently offering a total of $3,000 in mini-grants to enhance and promote programs aimed at preventing and building awareness of child abuse and neglect. 

Organizations within Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, McLean, Ohio, Union, and Webster counties are eligible to apply. 

Projects must encompass one of the following goals: 

  1. Focus directly on child abuse/neglect prevention, 
  2. Educate the public and/or families about child abuse/neglect, or 
  3. Focus on developing positive relationships between children and parents. 

Eligible grant expenditures include educational materials, training events, and parenting classes. Funds cannot be used for capital equipment, building improvements, personnel costs, transportation, or projects exclusive to foster care or juvenile justice. 

Mini-grant applications may be obtained by contacting CCC Program Coordinator Maria Shyver at 270-852-1385. The application deadline is October 6 at 3 p.m. 

GRADD’s CCC Regional Network is a coalition of area agencies that seek to identify risk factors for child abuse/neglect and to combat these factors through community education and support. 

This project is funded in whole or in part by federal, Kentucky Cabinet for Health, or other state funds.
