From the Purpose: "This bill will reauthorize the Victims of Child Abuse Act of 1990 for five years, at $25 million per year. Congress unanimously reauthorized this program in 2014. The current funding level for the Victims of Child Abuse Act is $21 million. This is the only Federal program solely dedicated to Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs). This legislation will also update language of the statute to reflect the latest research and trends, and better reflect the relationship between and among CACs. Specifically, language is included to allow State chapters of CACs to assist local communities in coordinating efforts, including oversight and technical assistance. This legislation will ensure that grants to local CACs allow for a portion of the grants to be distributed to State chapters, to allow them to provide technical assistance, training, coordination, and oversight. Oversight and assistance of CACs by State chapters is complemented by authorizing the Department of Justice's Director of the Office of Victims of Crime to collaborate with State chapters, to provide oversight and technical assistance to local CACs as well as communities that want to develop a local CAC."
