Webinar to Examine Strategies for Promoting Equity With the Family First Act
The Annie E. Casey and William T. Grant foundations are hosting a webinar on April 25, 2019, to explore how child welfare leaders can use the Family First Prevention Services Act to achieve equitable outcomes for children and families.
During the webinar ― part of the Leading With Evidence: Informing Practice With Research series ― experts will discuss:
- new funding opportunities under the Family First Act for evidence-based prevention programs that support families and prevent the need for foster care;
- how to use the law to create more equitable outcomes when many evidence-based programs are not validated for children and families of color or delivered in the context of identity and culture; and
- how to use the law to engage communities, encourage innovation and invest in building further evidence to promote equity.
