Guidance on New Title IV-E Child Welfare Waiver Demonstration Projects
Tuesday, May 22, 2012
4 p.m. ET/ 3 p.m. CT/ 2 p.m. MT/ 1 p.m. PT
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released an Information Memorandum (IM) inviting child welfare agencies to submit proposals for IV-E waiver demonstration projects for consideration in FYs 2012-2014. Through the projects, states can waive certain child welfare spending requirements to test innovative approaches to service delivery and financing, including investment in services to allow children to remain safely at home. HHS is authorized to grant 10 new waivers each year of the next three years.
Commissioner Bryan Samuels will outline what the applicants are expected to employ in terms of development of a waiver project, the procedures HHS will use to receive and review the waiver demonstration proposals and the principles HHS will use to determine granting a waiver demonstration proposal.
NCSL will discuss the role state legislators can play in their states to partner with the child welfare agency to develop a proposal.
