Agency Wants to Improve|Foster Care Requirements

WASHINGTON (CN) - The Children's Bureau of the Department of Health and Human Services plans to improve the process by which the Administration for Children and Families reviews state foster care compliance.

If a state does not follow the federal child welfare program requirements, it must establish and implement a plan to remedy its non-conformities within two years. Some of the federal child welfare funds will be withheld until the state is found

to be in substantial conformity.

The bureau requests suggested improvements for the federal government review of state child welfare system, codified in regulations issued in 2000.
