Program Administration Manual for Child Advocacy Demonstration Projects.
Bureau of Education for the Handicapped (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.; National Inst. of Mental Health (DHEW), Bethesda, MD.
This document gives detailed instructions for filling out application forms for child advocacy demonstration projects. Proposals for pilot projects to be operated within school neighborhoods may be submitted by institutions, agencies, or consortiums to the Bureau of Education for the Handicapped and the National Bureau of Mental Health. The major purposes of such programs are to: (1) insure that children have access to services which are available in the community, (2) identify needed preventive and remedial services which are not available and mobilize resources to get such services, and (3) evaluate and improve the effectiveness of services. Citizen participation is considered vital to the child advocacy projects. Funding will be provided through grants to public schools or various community agencies. Because of limited funds, special consideration may be given to applicants who have or can involve collaborative programs already underway. (NH)
