Cost Neutrality

– What would the State/Tribe have received in IV-E
Foster Care payments in the absence of the
waiver?
– Capped allocation can include almost any foster
care costs, but most state capped allocation
waivers have included maintenance payments
and administration.

Common Strategies
• Many states have identified expanded use of in-home services as a
strategy.
• Many states have identified trauma-informed assessments and care as
strategies.
• Several states have identified implementation or expansion of
differential or alternative response initiatives.
• Several states have identified use of Family Finding as a tool.
• A number of states have identified family/youth engagement and
involvement as strategies.
• Several states focus on kinship care (supporting effective placements
and moving those placements to permanency).
• Several states are focusing on reducing reliance on congregate care or
residential treatment.
• Several states are collaborating with their Medicaid and/or Behavioral
Health systems.

•
What are your target populations?
What interventions do you plan to use?
What outcomes do you expect?
What is your theory of change?
How will you evaluate these outcomes?
How realistic are your plans?
What are the costs and savings (goes beyond
cost neutrality)?

PLACE MATTERS
Using Data to Measure Success
More children are
finding permanent
families through
adoption,
reunification and
guardianships.
Our goal is for children to have no more than two
placement changes a year and to reduce the length
of stay in foster care.
Children who grow up
with permanent
families are more
likely to succeed later
in life.
