The Kentucky Child Victims’ Trust Fund (CVTF) provides funding for child sexual abuse prevention programs. The CVTF awards grant funding to regional and statewide prevention programs that utilize innovative strategies to provide children with personal safety skills, teach adults how to keep children safe from child sexual abuse and exploitation, and inform the public about mandatory reporting of suspected child abuse. The CVTF also provides partial reimbursement for child sexual abuse medical exams at children’s advocacy centers across the state.

The Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation Prevention Board (CSAEP Board), a 170(c)(1) non-profit organization, oversees the CVTF. The CVTF prevention activities and child advocacy programs are funded through private donations, proceeds from the purchase of “I Care About Kids” license plates and donations made through the state income tax refund check-off program.​​​​​​​​​​​
