Kentucky Child Victims' Trust Fund

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Kentucky Child Victims’ Trust Fund (CVTF) provides funding for child abuse and neglect prevention partners to address and respond to child maltreatment in the Commonwealth. The CVTF awards funding to regional and statewide prevention programs that utilize innovative strategies to provide children with personal safety skills; teach adults how to keep children safe from child abuse, neglect and exploitation; and inform the public about mandatory reporting of suspected child abuse. The CVTF also provides partial reimbursement for child sexual abuse and child abuse and neglect medical exams at children’s advocacy centers across the state.

The Child Abuse and Neglet Prevention Board (CANP Board) oversees the CVTF. The CVTF prevention activities and medical exam reimbursements are funded through private donations, proceeds from the purchase of “I Care About Kids” license plates, and donations made through the state income tax refund check-off program.​​​​​​​​​​​
