ACF Releases Summary of ACYF Projects in Fiscal Year 2012
The Administration for Children and Families has released a summary of the projects funded by the Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF) in fiscal year 2012. Last year, ACYF disbursed $46.6 million to states, tribes, territories, and local entities and granted title IV-E child welfare waivers to nine states. The projects and waiver demonstrations had a special focus on integrating safety, permanency, and well-being and addressing trauma. They were designed to increase workforce capacity; support caregivers; help children build coping and social skills; and enhance access to screening, assessment, and interventions. This document includes a list of the evidence-based and evidence-informed interventions delivered by ACYF grantees and a summary of each of the funded projects.
