On October 19th, 2022, the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) released the Roadmaps to Building Child Welfare Evidence, developed by the Child Welfare Evidence Strengthening Team (CWEST). CWEST developed these tools to give child welfare administrators and evaluators knowledge on many elements of the evaluation process.

As the Title IV-E Prevention Services Clearinghouse continues to slowly accept new programs, these tools may provide guidance and will hopefully increase the number and variety of programs that can be funded under the Family First Act.
