National CASA Association Grants Program
The purpose of the National CASA Association grants program is to build and strengthen our network of CASA/GAL programs and increase the number of abused and neglected children served by court-appointed advocates.
2015 Grants Program
The National CASA
Association is authorized to distribute funds through a grant from the U.S.
Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
(OJJDP), as authorized under the Victims of Child Abuse Act (P.L. 101-647), for
the purpose of increasing the number of abused and neglected children assigned
a CASA volunteer or volunteer guardian ad litem (GAL) to advocate for their
best interests. These are federal funds
and may only be used to serve abused and neglected children who are the
subjects of civil child abuse proceedings.
Please note that the application period for all 2015 National CASA Association grants is now closed.
Only member programs in good standing with the National CASA Association are eligible to apply for grant funding. Member programs must have paid membership dues, submitted the 2014 annual survey and program six-month reporting, and remained in compliance with National CASA Association Standards.
