National CASA Grants Program

Children in fieldThe National CASA Grants Program exists to strengthen and sustain a nationwide network of CASA/GAL programs currently serving nearly 240,000 abused and neglected children each year. Grants are awarded to increase the number of CASA organizations nationwide; strengthen and expand existing organizations; and increase the diversity of CASA volunteers to better reflect the children served. 

Each year, approximately one-third of CASA/GAL programs receive grants from the National CASA Association through a competitive funding process. More than $120 million in grants have been awarded since 1993.

In 2011, National CASA  awarded $7.3 million in grants to state organizations and local programs that are members of the National CASA Association through competitive and non-competitive cycles. Read more about the grants program in the National CASA Grants section of this website.

The National CASA grants program is funded primarily through the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, with contributions from private sources including Jewelers for Children.


The US Department of Justice has supported CASA advocacy since 1985 through its Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
