Session 1: CSEC Funding Opportunities Webinar


Has your department ever experienced any problems determining what expenses are claimable under SB 794? In 2015, SB 794 was enacted. This bill requires child welfare and probation departments to identify, document, and determine appropriate services for youth at risk for, or a victim of, commercial sexual exploitation (CSE), as well as implement protocols to expeditiously locate youth missing from care. Each year a portion of funds are allocated to probation to assist in these efforts.

This 1.5-hour webinar will be presented by the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) fiscal staff and the Child Trafficking Response Unit.  They will provide an overview of the various funding opportunities and provide guidance on what is considered claimable under SB 794.  SB 855, which is a child welfare county opt-in program, will also be briefly covered in this webinar.

Targeted Audience: Probation CSEC coordinators, probation fiscal and program staff at all levels.
