Strategic Plan

The Prevention Board strategic plan provides a roadmap for its work to prevent first time occurrences of child maltreatment. The strategic plan is comprised of four strategies with key initiatives to advance the Board's mission and vision. More than $2 million is awarded annually through a competitive grant making process to support community-based prevention services to further these strategies.List of current grantees​.
