AG Brnovich Announces $600,000 in New Grant Funding for Child and Family Advocacy Centers

PHOENIX – Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced today that the Arizona Attorney General’s Office (AGO) provided $600,000 in new grant funding for Child and Family Advocacy Centers (CFACs) across the state. In total, 21 centers servicing the majority of the state will receive a proportional share of the grant funding based on the number of victims each center served during the 2021 calendar year.

"We must always do right by victims," said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. "Arizona communities should come together to support them and provide the resources for getting through difficult times."

During the 2021 calendar year, the 21 centers collectively provided victim-focused programs and helped coordinate critical victims’ services for 26,200 Arizona individuals impacted by family violence and sexual assault, including children. This includes:

  • 8,019 victims of child abuse or neglect
  • 1,470 vulnerable adult victims of abuse
  • 5,294 victims of sexual assault
  • 8,489 victims of domestic violence
  • 83 victims of juvenile sex trafficking
  • 273 victims impacted by homicide
  • 2,572 victims of other related crimes

“Attorney General Brnovich and his office have been a voice for victims in need and have fought to ensure all voices are heard and that all victims are treated with dignity and respect," said Trevor Umphress, Executive Director of the Arizona Child & Family Advocacy Network. "This vital round of funding from the Attorney General’s Office will help ensure Child & Advocacy Centers will continue offering services at no charge across the state."

This is the third round of funding provided by the AGO to CFACs since the implementation of the grant program in 2019. To date, $1.8 million in total funding has been awarded to CFACs by the AGO since 2021. The most recent round of $600,000 in grant funding will be distributed as follows:
