The Office of Child Abuse Prevention is pleased to announce the availability of up to $750,000 per year of federal and state funding for the Economic Empowerment Program for up to ten grantees for fiscal years (FY) 2021-23. Applicants must currently be an agency qualified to receive the Community Services Block Grants serving families with children living in poverty or a subcontractor of such an agency. The Economic Empowerment grant will provide funding for support and training in the “Your Money, Your Goals” financial empowerment toolkit developed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) throughout the state of California. The intent of the curriculum is to empower parents by building their ability to manage money, use financial services, and provide access to products that work for them, thus lowering financial stress and reducing the risk factors of child maltreatment. Grant applications will be accepted through December 18, 2020.
