Family First Prevention Services Act
In February 2018, Congress passed the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA), taking an important step toward better supporting the well-being of infants and toddlers in the child welfare system.
For the first time, FFPSA opens uncapped entitlement funding for evidence-based services to prevent foster care placements, potentially transforming child welfare practice for many children and families.
ZERO TO THREE’s Safe Babies Court Team™ approach can help states successfully implement FFPSA with a science-based framework that helps communities, courts, and child welfare agencies reorient policy and practice to address the needs of families with infants and toddlers holistically and early.
Safe Babies Court Team™ and Family First Prevention Services Act Go Hand-In-Hand: A Toolkit for Judges and Stakeholders to Advocate with States
Judges and stakeholders committed to using SBCT to change how they support young children and families can play a big role in ensuring states incorporate SBCT in their FFPSA plans. This toolkit details how SBCT and FFPSA fit together and how to advocate for states to embrace SBCT as part of their FFPSA plans.
