Register: Conducting a Fiscal Analysis to Implement Family First Prevention Services Act
The Annie E. Casey Foundation is hosting a webinar on July 22, 2020 to debut a Foundation tool and guide for child welfare leaders to plan their fiscal approaches to implementing the Family First Prevention Services Act.
The webinar, Family First Prevention Services: Conducting a Fiscal Analysis, will provide a tool — along with steps for using it — to understand the fiscal effects of the Family First Prevention Services Act. Participants will receive practical tips to help them:
- Develop realistic budget estimates for evidence-based programs,
- Project the staffing and contracted resources needed to effectively administer prevention services,
- Estimate matching Title IV‑E revenue, with consideration of Medicaid coverage, Maintenance of Effort and evidence spending requirements, and
- Project cost savings in spending on out-of-home placements generated by successful prevention services.
When: Wednesday, July 22, 2020, at 2 p.m. ET
The webinar is part of the Leading With Evidence series, which focuses on how child welfare leaders, researchers and program developers can work together to leverage the use of evidence in the child welfare field.
- Suzanne Barnard (moderator), director of the Casey Foundation’s Evidence-Based Practice Group,
- Margaret Flynn-Khan, Partner, Mainspring Consulting, and
- Rosaline Tupou, Child Welfare Program Development Administrator from the Hawaii Department of Human Services.
