Archive Search Capabilities

« Back to Search
Published: October 31, 2017

This archive search is much like the Resource Library search on acf.hhs.gov. You can search for a particular archive item by keyword or narrow the search results by ACF program office or date.  Search results are only for content located in the ACF archive. To see HHS archive results visit http://archive.hhs.gov/

Note: Searching on the ACF archive site does not recognize exact phrases in quotation marks. The site uses an "AND" Boolean search that helps users to get to the most relevant search results by finding items that use BOTH keywords or filters. For example, a Boolean search could be "child abuse" AND "reports". This limits the search results to content containing the two phrases or keywords for more accurate results.

Archive site search  will not display current content from the ACF main website and related program office sites.  If you're looking for the most recent and relevant content visit: https://www.acf.hhs.gov/search.
