How can states and tribes provide feedback on model licensing standards for family foster homes?

Casey Family Programs hosted an informational webinar to highlight the opportunity to provide public comments to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on its proposed set of standards, following the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) requirement for HHS to identify reputable model licensing standards for foster family homes. 

Presenters from Generations United and National Indian Child Welfare Association shared insights and information to better understand the history and importance of this provision, and how FFPSA’s licensing standards offer an opportunity for states and tribes to make licensure more achievable for relatives and kinship care providers.
