Dur­ing the ses­sion ― part of the Lead­ing With Evi­dence webi­nar series ― experts will share their insights on design­ing and financ­ing ser­vices to pre­vent chil­dren and young peo­ple from becom­ing involved in the child wel­fare system.

Mar­garet Fly­nn-Khan of Main­spring Con­sult­ing will pre­view a tool being pilot­ed with sev­er­al states that helps child wel­fare lead­ers ana­lyze the fis­cal impli­ca­tions of pre­ven­tion ser­vices. Par­tic­i­pants will learn about key con­sid­er­a­tions for 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 Lead­ing With Evi­dence series explores how child wel­fare lead­ers, researchers and pro­gram devel­op­ers can work togeth­er to fur­ther the use of evi­dence in the child wel­fare field.
