March 2004Vol. 5, No. 2Resources for Strategic Planning for Child Welfare

The National Child Welfare Resource Center for Organizational Improvement (NCWRCOI) recently released a print guide and held two teleconferences on the topic of strategic planning for child welfare agencies. The guide offers a four-step blueprint for developing a strategic plan, State and Tribal examples, and seven attachments including everything from Federal requirements to a strategic planning process checklist. The teleconferences, held on February 12 and March 2, focused on the Title IV-B Five Year Child and Family Service Plan (CSFP). Best practices related to strategic planning and the integration of the CSFP with other agency plans were discussed.
