Project Abstract

Family First Prevention Services Act is sweeping child welfare legislation. This legislation authorizes federal reimbursement to states for the delivery of evidence-based programs aimed at preventing foster care. Colorado will be among the first states to submit a “Prevention Services Plan.” This plan describes what evidence-based prevention services Colorado will request reimbursement for, and it details how implementation fidelity will be monitored and effectiveness evaluated.

The Colorado Lab is supporting the development and implementation of Colorado’s “Prevention Services Plan” by (1) reviewing evidence of specific prevention programs to inform reimbursement requests, (2) drafting the evaluation section of the plan, and (3) advising the state on resources needed to monitor program implementation fidelity and support continuous quality improvement.
