Write To Your Elected Officials
On March 16, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 485, also called the Stronger Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, authorizing significant increases for CAPTA. CAPTA provides funds for evidence-based child abuse prevention programs.
It is imperative that the House Appropriations Committee funds CAPTA as the House intended in H.R. 485. Please write to your representative, asking them to support Stronger CAPTA today. There is a sign-on letter circulating for members of the House of Representatives to show support for this program and we need strong support.
