Take Action: Utah, Encourage Increased Investment in CAPTA

Utahns, please encourage Senator Lee to support federal investment in the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) at the House funding levels.

Earlier this year the House passed legislation that would advance increased funding for services under CAPTA. However, the Senate draft spending bill doesn’t provide for the same level of funding. It’s critical that key lawmakers in the Senate hear from you now, during budget negotiations, in order to advance funding for child abuse prevention, intervention, and treatment. Share information on CAPTA with Senator Lee, and include your experience with CAPTA funded services, to highlight how funding for these services improves the lives in his constituency.
