Child Welfare: States Use Flexible Federal Funds, but Struggle to Meet Service Needs
Kay E. Brown (au)
In FY 2011, over 675,000 children were found to be victims of abuse or neglect. To help ensure that such children have safe and permanent homes, state and local child welfare agencies secure child welfare services, such as parenting classes and substance abuse treatment. Title IV-B of the Social Security Act is the primary source of federal funding designated for child welfare services that is available to states. In FY 2012, Congress appropriated $730 million under Title IV-B. Although states augment these funds with state, local, and other federal funds, some children and families may not receive the services they need. This report provides information about the funding and provision of child welfare services. It addresses: (1) how selected states use funds provided under Title IV-B; (2) what alternative sources of federal funding states use to fund child welfare services and other activities covered under Title IV-B; and (3) what services, if any, child welfare agencies have difficulty securing for children and their families. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
