State Fact Sheets on Child Welfare Funding 

From CLASP/Center for Law and Social Policy: Many people across the country believe the child welfare system must do more to prevent child abuse and neglect; to provide specialized treatment to families struggling with problems of mental health, substance abuse, or domestic violence; to promote new permanency options for children, including support for grandparents and other relatives who have stepped in to raise children when their parents cannot; and to provide adequate numbers of child welfare workers who are trained to deal with the complex needs of families in crisis. At the heart of the debate lie questions about how best to increase the capacity, in each of these areas, to improve outcomes for children and families—and how to hold federal, state, and local governments more accountable for these outcomes.
