Financing Child Welfare Services

Momentum toward comprehensive child welfare financing reform continues to build. In September, 2011 legislation passed the House that reinstates the authority of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to allow up to 10 states to implement new innovative demonstration projects through a five-year waiver of Title IV-E. While IV-E waiver authority falls short of CWLA's idea of comprehensive reform, innovative and effective practices can be developed through the research, development, testing and evaluation processes required under waiver authority. Perhaps most importantly, Congressional supporters of the waiver provisions publically committed to continuing to fight for more far reaching finance reform.
