New! On the Children's Bureau Site
As a regular feature, each issue of Children's Bureau Express will now include a link to the "New on Site" section of the Children's Bureau website. The Children's Bureau website carries information on child welfare programs, funding, monitoring, training and technical assistance, laws, statistics, research, Federal reporting, and much more. The "New on Site" section includes grant announcements, policy announcements, agency information, and recently released publications.
Some of the recent additions to the site include:
- National Court and Child Welfare Collaborative: Focus on System Reform — An announcement that the American Bar Association Center on Children and the Law, the National Center for State Courts, and the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges have formed a collaborative, with the goal of improving outcomes for abused and neglected children involved with the court system.
- Methamphetamine: The Child Welfare Impact and Response — Proceedings (including workshop presentations and handouts) from the May 2006 Children's Bureau conference on methamphetamines and the impact on children and families, held in partnership with SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Treatment and the Child Care Bureau.
- 2006 Child and Family Services Review Information: Technical Bulletin #2 — Information on ACF's approach to determining the time periods for the sample of cases for the onsite Child and Family Services Reviews, as well as the time periods and technical information for FY 2007 through FY 2010.
