An Introduction to the Children's Trust Fund. Prevention Focus Working Paper No. 005.
Birch, Thomas L.
Beginning in 1980, legislation in six states to establish a Children's Trust Fund has been enacted. The legislation creates new sources of support for preventive services in the area of child abuse in Kansas, Washington, Iowa, Virginia, Michigan, and California. To show how the trust-fund concept has been and can be adapted to different political and practical demands, this working paper briefly reviews the history and basic characteristics of the Children's Trust Fund and examines the provisions of the various legislative enactments in a state-by-state comparison. Appended are copies of legislation establishing the Children's Trust Fund in Kansas and Michigan, along with a summary of Michigan legislation. (RH)
