This briefing will emphasize the urgent need to right-size federal child welfare policy and funding to better protect children and support their well-being. Panelists will discuss the positive impact that responsive family and community resources have on the health, safety, and stability of children and how the current financial structure of CAPTA permits ineffective and harmful outcomes for children. Panelists will explore changes in policy, legislation, and appropriations.
