NC CTP has been in operation since 2006, serving as a statewide platform for the implementation and support of child trauma mental health EBTs. In 2013, the North Carolina General Assembly awarded NC CTP an annually-recurring appropriation, administered by the NC Division of Child and Family Well-Being (NC DCFW), to support an array of child trauma mental health EBTs across North Carolina. In 2024, the NC DCFW awarded additional funding for EBT dissemination across the state.  Overview:
