The program was created to help protect the increasing numbers of children and teenagers using the Internet.
The Justice Department said the program seeks to stop the proliferation of child pornography and growing online attempts by predators seeking contacts with potential underage victims.
Since ICAC was created 15 years ago, the Justice Department reports it has reviewed more than 280,000 complaints of alleged child sexual victimization in the United States and 17 foreign countries, leading to the arrest of more than 30,000 individuals.
In the U.S., ICAC investigated more than 180,000 allegations of sexual victimization, which led to more than 16,500 arrests, Rockefeller and Manchin pointed out in a news release.
The ICAC is part of the Justice Department's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
On Tuesday, Rockefeller and Manchin also announced more than $150,000 in federal funds will go to the Rape Prevention and Education program, run by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.
Rockefeller, a co-sponsor of the Violence Against Women Act, said, "Making sure West Virginians are safe in their homes and in their communities is so important, and we must do everything possible to reduce sexual violence.
"Improving education and building awareness are two smart and effective ways that we can try to reduce the incidence of sexual violence in our state."
Manchin said, "There are few crimes more devastating or terrifying than sexual assault and domestic abuse. ...
"We need to work together to educate people in our communities to help prevent such horrifying acts from happening and to make sure all individuals are safe from sexual and domestic violence."
The RPE program, which gives states grants to strengthen programs to prevent sexual violence, is funded by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control.
