Families first act
On February 9, 2018, Congress passed the Families First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) as part of a spending agreement. FFPSA has been considered as a stand alone bill for several years. FFPSA is an important bill that will impact the way services are funded and delivered to children, youth, and families in the child protection system.
TACFS is analyzing this important piece of legislation for our members and working closely with our state and federal partners to work through changes made in the legislation.
