Child Welfare and Early Childhood: Cross-Systems Collaboration to Improve Outcomes for Young Children and Families: Using the Family First Prevention Services Act to implement Early Child Programs
With the passing of the FFPSA, any state, territories, or tribe with an approved Title IV-E plan has the option to use funds for preventative services such as in-home parent skill-based programs, mental health services, and substance abuse prevention and treatment services to allow children eligible for foster care to stay with their parents or relatives. What opportunities does FFPSA create for early childhood programs and services? What are the opportunities and challenges for expansion of home visiting under FFPSA? What other interventions and practices approved under FFPSA target young children and their parents?
