Family First Prevention Services Act

Family First Prevention Services Act

Congress passed the Family First Prevention Services Act in February 2018. This law restructures the child welfare funding that the Department of Family and Protective Services uses to pay for services for children in foster care and other services for families.

DFPS recently published a summary of the new law and will continue to post updates on the DFPS website as our analysis evolves. We welcome you to visit the website often and to sign up for email updates on this subject if it is of interest to you.
