The Center for States helps child welfare agencies implement the FFPSA. Explore Center resources to learn more about key provisions of the FFPSA and find tips and strategies to support implementation.
The FFPSA was signed into law as part of Public Law (P.L.) 115–123 and has several provisions to enhance support services for families to help children remain at home, reduce the unnecessary use of congregate care, and build the capacity of communities to support children and families.
To assist agencies in responding to the FFPSA, the Center offers technical assistance, publications, digital resources, and peer networking. Center resources can help states develop and implement prevention plans aligned with strategic priorities, partner with youth, families, and communities to develop a prevention service array, enhance kinship programming, identify and evaluate evidence-based practices, increase family engagement, reduce the use of congregate care, and sustain change efforts.
