Florida Reports Success Via Community-Based Care Title IV-E Waiver

A report prepared by University of South Florida researchers describes Florida's use of a federal waiver on expenditure of Title IV-E funds.  Since October 2006, Florida has redirected monies from out-of-home care (i.e., foster care and group home placements) by expanding prevention, family preservation, and in-home and other diversionary services and supports for families involved in, or at risk of involvement in, the child welfare system.  According to the data-laden report, Florida's community-based approach has resulted in improved outcomes for children with respect to safety and permanency, potentially signaling important innovations in child welfare policy and practice.
