Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board

​​​​​​ ​​​​CANP Board

The Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention (CANP) Board​ was formed in 2022 by KRS 15.905 for the "coordination and exchange of information on the establishment and maintenance of prevention programs." (KRS 15.920) The Board also oversees the Child Victims' Trust Fund (CVTF), a non-profit program that provides local communities with funding for child abuse prevention programs and reimbursement for the portion of child sexual abuse medical exam expenses not covered by Medicaid or private insurance.

What are the goals of the Board?

  • To promote public and professional education on the nature and scope of child abuse and related issues, indicators, laws, roles, and resources;
  • To raise awareness that it is adults’ responsibility to provide a safe community for children;
  • To reduce the incidence and impact of child abuse by promoting, supporting and/or funding effective programs; and
  • To establish procedures to generate and oversee the effective and efficient use of CVTF monies.
