The Child Trends report, Child Wel­fare Financ­ing SFY 2014: A Sur­vey of Fed­er­al, State and Local Expen­di­tures, pro­vides time­ly data on state-lev­el child wel­fare financ­ing. The report is an impor­tant resource to help state advo­cates more effec­tive­ly engage in pol­i­cy dis­cus­sions regard­ing the avail­abil­i­ty, acces­si­bil­i­ty and lev­el of child wel­fare fund­ing need­ed to sup­port a con­tin­u­um of resources and services.

Aside from Titles IV‑E and IV‑B, no oth­er data exist on states’ use of each major fed­er­al fund­ing sources for child wel­fare. The report also pro­vides infor­ma­tion on expen­di­tures from state and local dollars.

The report and fact sheets are avail­able on the Child Trends web­site. A webi­nar describ­ing the study results, How States Fund Child Wel­fare Ser­vices: Find­ings From a Nation­al Study,” also is available.
