QIC-AG Site Selection
The National Quality Improvement Center for Adoption and Guardianship Support and Preservation (QIC-AG) recently announced that it completed the site selection for its collaborative project partners. A 5-year project and partnership among the Children's Bureau, Spaulding for Children, the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the QIC-AG seeks to promote permanency, where reunification is no longer a goal, and improve adoption and guardianship preservation and support. QIC-AG will work with the selected sites to develop a continuum of services that increases stability for families both before and after permanency, improve children’s behavioral health, and advance the well-being of children and families.
The following sites have been selected as partners for the 5-year initiative: Illinois; New Jersey; Catawba County, North Carolina; Tennessee; Texas; Vermont; the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska; and Wisconsin.

The QIC-AG was featured in the March 2015 issue of CBX.
