This document presents testimony from a congressional hearing examining the Child Abuse Prevention, Adoption, and Family Services Act. In response to the General Accounting Office's (GAO's) concerns about the ability of the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN) to perform its leadership role in identifying, preventing, and treating child abuse and neglect, this hearing was called to determine the progress made by NCCAN in the 9 months since the GAO concerns were raised and to make a recommendation on the length of the reauthorization for NCCAN. Testimonies focus on the NCCAN role; the role of the U.S. Advisory Board on Child Abuse and Neglect; expansion of child abuse, adoption, and family services programs; and child abuse fatalities.
