This brief explains collaboration is a priority area for Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention (CBCAP) programs to help maximize the use of limited prevention dollars. It notes that by working with cross-sector partners who have a vested interest in child abuse prevention, States and communities can improve service delivery systems and increase the effectiveness of programs. Information is provided on what collaboration in CBCAP means and how collaboration ties into the efforts of CBCAP to move along the continuum of evidence-based and evidence-informed practice. Recommendations for potential collaboration partners are then discussed and links are provided to resources on collaborating for creative solutions, collaborating during the Child and Family Service Reviews, and a collaboration toolkit.
