Satellite Application Process And Fees
Applying for Satellite membership with the National Children’s Alliance is an elective process. Completed applications must include the narrative responses to the three NCA National Standards for Accreditation (Forensic Interview, Victim Advocacy, and Child-Focused Setting), the required attachments, and the application processing fee.
Preparing the Application package:
Prepare all application files in a folder named - State abbreviation, city, organization name. Example: “TN, Gallatin, Ashley’s Place”.
The application folder should include the completed files in the following order ( the names of the files must be as written below)
- A. Application Cover Page, state abbreviation, city
- B. Application Narrative, state abbreviation, city
- C. Application Attachments Table of Contents page, state abbreviation, city
- D. Application Attachments, state abbreviation, city
Please scan the attachments in the order listed in the “C. Application Attachments Table”. Make sure that the name of each file starts with the corresponding number in the attachment table. If the file is too large it may be broken in to two/three while maintaining the order.
Upon the receipt of your application you will be contacted by an NCA Program Associate to confirm the receipt. Initial feedback and any request for additional documentation and narrative information based on the application review will occur within 30 days of receipt. At that time, a conference call will be scheduled between NCA representatives and the Satellite management staff, MDT from the Satellite service area, and senior leadership of the Staff and Board from the Host Agency.
Please e-mail your application to the Program Associate that is assigned to your state. A map with e-mail addresses can be found here: http://www.nationalchildrensalliance.org/staff-directory
