Child Protective services are getting a $10-million infusion from the Trump administration, according to a report in Vice News.
The program is meant to provide services to children in need in the community, such as domestic violence shelters and mental health clinics, but it also provides services to other children as well.
The funds will be used to pay for staffing, operations, and administrative expenses for the agency.
The new funding comes after the Trump Administration requested $30 million from the Department of Justice last year to provide emergency funding to local law enforcement agencies, and the White House has been asking for more funding to help provide more services to communities.
Child Protective Protective Services receives more than $4 billion in taxpayer dollars each year to serve and protect children, and President Trump has said that he wants to make sure the agencies that receive funding have the resources they need to do their jobs.
The Child Protective Protection Fund (CPDF) was established in 2009 to help families dealing with the aftermath of domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as the emotional and financial stress caused by child abuse.
According to the CPDF website, it is designed to assist children and families who are at risk of becoming victims of domestic and sexual violence or abuse.
The Trump Administration also requested $7 million to fund Child Protective Resources Centers, which will be the primary place that families can go to get information about the resources available to them.
“It’s a big change from what they did when they were running the [Homeland Security] department,” said Kelly Parnell, policy director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio.
“They were able to get more money to help with the resources for children and the families, and now they are asking for a whole lot more to help.”
While the new funding is an improvement over the last administration, it’s still less than the $50 million it was asking for.
The CPDFs funding is intended to supplement what the federal government has already invested in shelters, services, and other resources for abused and neglected children.
The Department of Homeland Security has allocated $1.2 billion for shelters in the past four years, according the agency’s website.
However, that funding is based on the federal budget that was passed by Congress last year.
According the report, the new administration has requested $35 million to support child welfare agencies.
“The Trump administration has asked for $30,000 more for child welfare services and more money for child protective services,” Parn, the ACLU of Ohio, told Vice News in a statement.
“As a child protection worker, I know that we are fighting for the rights of our kids, but we can’t do it alone.”
