The federal 2018 Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) established requirements to limit the number of children/youth placed in child care institutions (congregate care). The new requirements for placing agencies are meant to ensure that children/youth receive the treatment and services they need within their family, a family foster care setting or in their community, and only when that is not possible they are placed in an child care institution.

This page was created to share information, resources, and training about the Family First Prevention Services Act. To register for any of the FFPSA policy webinars and SSIS coffee talks taking place during August and September, visit here. Registration is required.

The webinars will be recorded and posted on this page for those who were not able to attend the live presentations.
