This article provides an overview of the funding streams that finance the U.S. child welfare system, reviews the federal legislation since 1970 that has led to the current funding structure, and ends with a discussion of how the Family First Prevention Services Act of 2018 has the potential to create better outcomes for children and families by promoting prevention activities and program support with strong evidence of success.

The former administration had refused to allow parents who'd been deported back into the U.S. to reunite with their children. "Now all eyes are on Biden."

Tricia N. Stephens - Genealogy,
