The Title IV-E Prevention Services Clearinghouse issued a new request for recommendations for mental health, substance abuse, in-home parent skill-based, and kinship navigator programs and services to be considered for systematic review and inclusion among services that can be paid for under the Family First Prevention Services Act. This year’s announcement highlighted a preference for programs and services that are relevant to advancing equity and supporting underserved communities.

The Title IV- E Prevention Services Clearinghouse was established by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to conduct an objective and transparent review of research on programs and services intended to provide enhanced support to children and families and prevent foster care placements.

To be eligible for review, programs and services must address at least one of the four program or service areas: (1) mental health prevention and treatment programs or services, (2) substance abuse prevention and treatment programs or services, (3) in-home parent skill-based programs or services, and/or (4) kinship navigator programs. In addition, programs/services must have a book, manual, writings available and the programs and services must be clearly defined and replicable. They must have available written protocols, manuals, or other documentation that describes how to implement or administer the practice.

The submission deadline is November 22nd, 2022.
