Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board (CANPB)
conducts various activities relating to the prevention of child abuse and neglect.
Those activities include all of the following:
1. Awarding grants for child abuse and neglect prevention programs that
promote public awareness of the need for child abuse and neglect prevention and that
provide community-based education and services for parents, children, and
families.
2. Awarding grants to family resource centers that provide parenting education
and referrals to other social services programs.
3. Administering statewide projects for the prevention of child abuse and
neglect.
4. In cooperation with the Department of Children and Families and the
Department of Public Instruction, promoting statewide educational and public
awareness campaigns and materials for the purpose of developing public awareness
of the problems of child abuse and neglect and disseminating information about the
problems of, and methods of preventing, child abuse and neglect to the public and to
organizations concerned with those problems.

5. Providing, for use in its statewide projects and for use by organizations that
receive grants from the CANPB, educational and public awareness materials and
programming that emphasize the role of fathers in the primary prevention of child
abuse and neglect.
This bill requires the CANPB, in conducting those activities, to emphasize
nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
