Implementing the Substance Use Disorder Provisions of the Family First Prevention Services Act: A Toolkit for Child Welfare and Treatment Stakeholders
Children and Family Futures
This toolkit summarizes two unique opportunities in FFPSA to support children and families affected by SUDs:
FFPSA authorized new optional title IV-E funding for time-limited (1 year) prevention services for mental health, substance abuse, and in-home parent skill-based programs for: a child who is a candidate for foster care, pregnant/parenting foster youths and parents/kin caregivers of those children and youths.
FFPSA permits states to use title IV-E foster care funding for children placed in out-of-home care with their parent in a licensed, residential family-based SUD treatment facility. See also FFPSA Implementation Challenges and Strategies.
