Request For Applications From States And Local Communities
The National Infant-Toddler Court Program (ITCP), operated by ZERO TO THREE, announced a new funding opportunity on June 15th for states and local communities seeking to implement or increase alignment with the Safe Babies Court Team™ (SBCT) approach. Thank you for your submissions in response to the RFA. We will be reviewing and scoring applications over the next few weeks and successful applicants will be notified on August 17th.
In this resource
Infant-toddler court teams using the SBCT™ approach provide a trauma-informed, collaborative, problem-solving structure for meeting the developmental needs of very young children in foster care or at risk of removal from the home and strengthening their families. With support from the Health Resources and Services Administration Maternal and Child Health Bureau, funding will be made available to new states and jurisdictions seeking to implement an infant-toddler court team, and to jurisdictions currently implementing an infant-toddler court program in their communities.
The purpose of this funding is to enhance and expand state and site capacity for best practices that drive improved outcomes for very young children and families involved with the child welfare system and dependency court.
The ZERO TO THREE National Resource Center for the ITCP released the Request for Applications on June 15th. The application process is now closed. Applications were due on July 24 by 5pm EST to Janie Huddleston at email@example.com.
