Toolkit for Annual Progress and Services Report

The Children's Bureau website recently posted a toolkit to help with the development of the State and Tribal Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP)/Annual Progress and Services Report (APSR). This toolkit is a central location for all technical assistance documents and materials, as well as references to specific laws, policies, and checklists related to the CFSP/APSR.

The APSR is an annual report on a State's or Tribe's progress toward its CFSP, a 5-year comprehensive plan that outlines initiatives and activities in State and Tribal programs and services to promote the safety, permanency, and well-being of children and families. The reports contain new and updated information about service needs and organizational capacities throughout the plan period.

The CFSP/APSR Toolkit includes information on the following topics to help States and Tribes complete their APSR:

  • A State and Tribal checklist of APSR items
  • CFS-101, budget request, and summary of services
  • Service descriptions
  • Collaboration
  • Historical documents
  • Tribal consultations
  • State consultations
  • Program supports
  • Consultations with medical professionals
  • Disaster plans
  • Monthly caseworker visit data and State plan requirements
  • Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act State grants
  • Chafee Foster Care Independent Living Services Programs
  • Education and Training Vouchers
  • Financial and statistical information reporting
