Abstract
The Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) is the most substantial funding reform in the child welfare arena in the last 20 years. It aims to correct the value-policy mismatch perpetuated by the former funding system, which incentivized foster care placement and did not provide funding for noncustodial and prevention services. The new approach to funding incentivizes placing children in family settings; providing evidence-based services; and working with relatives who care for children in their families outside of the foster care system. FFPSA impacts a number of areas of child welfare practice, to varying degrees. The most critical elements are highlighted here.
