Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA)

Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA)

The Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) was passed in 2018 as part of a bipartisan budget agreement by the Federal government. The law includes new preventive service options and requirements for foster care placement settings. It amends existing provisions within Title IV-B and IV-E of the Social Security Act. With the passage of FFPSA, child welfare jurisdictions can use federal financial resources to move some child welfare activities from protection and remediation to prevention and strengthening of families and communities.

This page will serve as a hub for Southern Counties to share resources and updates on their local efforts.
