Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $1,000,000)

The goal of this project is to ensure that professionals working in every jurisdiction have free, accessible, and customizable materials to support child and youth victims and witnesses as they navigate and experience the court system. These materials should be designed to adapt to our country’s ever-changing demographics. Thus, these materials must be child and youth-centered, trauma-informed, and developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate. Materials must be accessible to people who are limited-English proficient (LEP); immigrant and refugee children; individuals with disabilities; children of color and those identifying as racially mixed, and their respective caregivers.
