In addition to the program's prevention and early intervention strategy and goals, the program uses the following criteria to guide its grant-making decisions: (1) Innovative Approaches to Child Abuse and Neglect - Organizations supported by the foundation generally examine new methods for preventing child abuse and neglect which complement or depart from traditional models. The foundation is particularly interested in models that involve larger community-based efforts that seek to improve overall conditions for families with young children, particularly those at high-risk for abuse and neglect. (2) Youngest Children (ages 0 to 6) - Organizations supported by the foundation must reach families with children birth to six years old, who constitute the majority of child abuse and neglect cases and suffer the greatest consequences of maltreatment. (3) Potentially Replicable - To harness the promise of evidence-based programs that reduce rates of child abuse and neglect, the foundation prioritizes support for initiatives that have the potential to be replicated throughout the country.
