Nurturing Children, Supporting Communities,

CAP Month

We believe that Montana’s children are the state’s greatest assets. Today’s children are the leaders of tomorrow. We hold their future in our hands, and our future is in their hands.

We will be accepting Request for Proposals (RFP) for local community-based child abuse and neglect prevention programs or family resource centers’ primary and secondary child abuse and neglect prevention services for the 2015-2016 cycle. To be eligible for this funding, your community’s Best Beginnings Community Coalition must apply. To access the 2015-2016 RFP, please follow the link below.

Top priorities for Montana’s Children’s Trust Fund:

  • Funding effective, primary prevention programs in local communities throughout Montana and enhancing communities' capacity to prevent child abuse and neglect by allocating CTF funds annually for primary and secondary child abuse and neglect prevention programs to community-based organizations;

  • Supporting public education (such as conferences, workshops, and seminars) that increase participants' knowledge and understanding of child abuse and neglect prevention, and strengthening families and communities;

  • Promoting the five protective factors; and

  • Increasing positive parenting skills that ensure the health, safety and well-being of children.
