Thursday July 16, 2020 01:00 PM - Thursday July 16, 2020 02:00 PM EDT

NAWRS, with sponsorship from APHSA and Public Consulting Group, would like to invite you to a two-part virtual session to learn about the Family First Prevention Service Act (FFSPA). NAWRS is a non-profit association whose purpose is to promote the exchange of ideas on how research and statistical analysis can contribute to the development and administration of effective human services programs. These sessions are geared towards state and local human services administrators, researchers, and policy folks interested in developing a greater understanding of the FFSPA, with an emphasis on the Title IV-E Prevention Services Program, and how it more broadly impacts the delivery and evaluation of human services programs. Each session will be 60 minutes in length.

In Part Two: Moving to Application, researchers from Chapin Hall will discuss how states have approached the requirements for Kinship Navigation and Prevention Plans, including important decision points. Representatives from Arkansas will discuss how they approached the evaluation requirements in their approved prevention plan. Representatives from Ohio will discuss how their state approached the requirements for Kinship Navigation.
