Earmarked appropriations pass through the Department of Children's Advocacy to several nonprofit agencies. Prior to receiving the funds, each nonprofit must submit a plan outlining how the state funds will be spent and how the expenditures will provide a public benefit.
The appropriation disbursement request forms, along with the quarterly expenditure reports, are published below:
S.C. Network of Children's Advocacy Centers
Children's Trust of South Carolina
Lowcountry Orphan Relief
Dickerson Child Advocacy Center
The Department of Children's Advocacy publishes these reports in accordance with Proviso 117.21 [PDF] of the Annual Appropriations Act and pursuant to Executive Order 2022-19. The proviso and executive order provide guidance on the information state agencies are required to collect prior to and after disbursing earmarked appropriations included in the Annual Appropriations Act. For more information, please read the EBO communication to Agency Chief Financial Officers (September 1, 2022) [PDF].
