A new webi­nar explores how to approach three impor­tant con­sid­er­a­tions in financ­ing pre­ven­tion ser­vices under the Fam­i­ly First Pre­ven­tion Ser­vices Act. It is the lat­est ses­sion in a series from the Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion and the William T. Grant Foun­da­tion that is focused on imple­ment­ing evi­dence-based prac­tices in child welfare.

The 60-minute webi­nar, Plan­ning for Fam­i­ly First Pre­ven­tion Ser­vices: Three Key Fis­cal Ele­ments to Con­sid­er, pre­views a tool being pilot­ed with sev­er­al states that helps child wel­fare lead­ers ana­lyze the fis­cal impli­ca­tions of ser­vices for chil­dren and fam­i­lies. Dur­ing the ses­sion, par­tic­i­pants learn about estimating:

  1. the costs of evi­dence-based pro­grams as well as case man­age­ment and oth­er admin­is­tra­tive support;
  2. the rev­enues to off­set costs, includ­ing pro­ject­ing the Title IV‑E rev­enue that a state can draw down and con­sid­er­ing oth­er poten­tial sources of rev­enue, such as Med­ic­aid; and
  3. pro­ject­ed cost sav­ings in spend­ing on out-of-home place­ments and relat­ed admin­is­tra­tive costs gen­er­at­ed by suc­cess­ful imple­men­ta­tion of pre­ven­tion services.

The record­ed ses­sion is part of Lead­ing With Evi­dence: Inform­ing Prac­tice With Research — a series that brings togeth­er child wel­fare lead­ers, researchers and pro­gram devel­op­ers to learn about advanc­ing the use of evi­dence in the child wel­fare field.

Suzanne Barnard, direc­tor of the Casey Foundation’s Evi­dence-Based Prac­tice Group, mod­er­at­ed the ses­sion. Dur­ing the webi­nar, the fol­low­ing experts joined Barnard:
