Federal Coordination to Promote Economic Mobility for All Americans

A note for Child Welfare Directors,

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is a member of the Council on Economic Mobility (Council), a new federal interagency effort. The Council seeks to create an accountable and effective structure for interagency collaboration and to use federal authorities to promote family-sustaining careers and economic mobility for low-income Americans.

The Council just published a request for information (RFI) to gather feedback from all of its stakeholders. As one of ACF’s key stakeholders, we encourage you to review the RFI and submit your comments before the deadline.

Your input is important! The information gathered in response to the RFI will be used to better inform the Council’s priorities, working group activities, stakeholder engagement, and federal programs. Feedback on the specific economic mobility, recovery, and resilience challenges in local communities in the short, medium, and long term is welcome.

We understand that this may be a busy time. While we encourage you to comment as soon as possible, the RFI is open for comment until October 2, 2020.

Thank you for your commitment to serving the American people. We hope that you are staying safe and well.

Lynn A. Johnson
Assistant Secretary
Administration for Children and Families
