Child Welfare Waivers

Waivers are legislatively-authorized and administratively-approved interruptions of federal regulation to allow states more flexible use of a particular funding stream. Child welfare waivers focus on funding provided by Title IV-E of the Social Security Act. They allow states to waive certain requirements of IV-E, IV-B, and the Chaffee Foster Care Independence Program. Flexible use of these funding streams allows for states to carry out alternative and innovative services and supports to promote safety, permanence and well-being for children. Waivers must be approved by the Department of Health and Human Services. Congress first made them available in 1994, expanded in 1997, extended until 2006, and reauthorized in 2011.
