The Governor's Office of Youth, Faith and Family (GOYFF) distributes state and federal funds.

Grants are then awarded through a formal application process called a Request for Grant Application.

State Targeted Response Program

Funding through the State Targeted Response Program is used to combat the opioid crisis by increasing access to treatment, reducing unmet treatment needs and reducing opioid overdose related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment, and recovery activities for opioid use disorder (OUD). This includes prescription opioids as well as illicit drugs such as heroin.

2018 Child Abuse Prevention Grant

“There is no higher priority than the safety and well-being of our children – and it is up to all of us to stand up for them,”  - First Lady Angela Ducey

The Child Abuse Prevention License Plate Donation Grant is a partnership between the Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family, the Arizona Community Foundation and The Arizona Republic. The goal of this program is to raise much-needed funds for child abuse prevention throughout Arizona. These specialty plates have been available for purchase since November of 1999.  Plates are sold for $25 each ($8 is a special plate administration fee and $17 is a tax-deductible annual donation).  

Annual donations are made available to organizations providing child abuse prevention services to Arizona communities through a competitive grant solicitation that is administered by the Arizona Republic. The 2018 Grant Application opens March 26, 2018 and will close on April 23, 2018.
