Child Welfare: Funding for Child and Family Services Authorized Under Title IV-B of the Social Security Act


Under Title IV-B of the Social Security Act, the federal government provides funds to states, tribes, and territories for the provision of child welfare-related services to children and their families. These services may be made available to any child, and his or her family, and without regard to whether the child is living in his or her own home, living in foster care, or was previously living in foster care. Title IV-B funds are primarily distributed via two formula grant programs. Under the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Child Welfare Services (CWS) program, states may provide a broad range of services designed to support, preserve, and/or reunite children and their families. States are required to use funding received under the Promoting Safe and Stable Families (PSSF) program for specific categories of child and family services. Combined FY2012 funding for these two programs was $689 million ($281 million for CWS and $408 million for PSSF). This represented close to 94% of the total $730 million provided in that year for all programs and activities under Title IV-B.
