Family First Prevention and Services Act (FFPSA) Part 1- Prevention Services Convening

This convening will offer an opportunity for Northern and Mt. Valley Child Welfare agencies to discuss the optional FFPSA Prevention Services Program that allows states to claim Title IV-E reimbursements up to 50% for evidence-based services targeted towards preventing entry into foster care for children considered to be at imminent risk. We will provide a high-level overview of FFPSA and California’s prevention plan, and give counties an opportunity to discuss their plans for FFPSA Part I implementation with each other.

The agenda for this half-day virtual convening includes:

  • High-level FFPSA overview
  • Summary of ACLs and ACINs and county opportunities and expectations related to FFPSA
  • Evidence-based practices for prevention and ideas for counties with no current EBPs
  • Inter-county discussion with similar-sized counties regarding hopes and worries related to FFPSA implementation
  • County support needs regarding FFPSA Part I implementation

Who Should Attend
