The South Carolina Network of Children's Advocacy Centers (SCNCAC) was one of a number of South Carolina victim's services groups than were awarded grants totaling more than $38 million. The awards were announced at a press conference held by the South Carolina Attorney General's Office in Columbia on October 11, 2017. The Public Safety Coordinating Council formally approved the grants in September and the funding started on October 1, 2017.
SCNCAC joined four of our Midlands Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs), who are also receiving awards, at the press conference. The four Midlands CACs are Dickerson Children's Advocacy Center, Edisto Children's Center, The Family Resource Center, and Child Advocacy Center of Aiken County.
The grants are distributed by the South Carolina Crime Victim Services Division, which was recently added to the Attorney General’s Office by state law. It had been a part of the Department of Public Safety.
