Child Welfare: Recent and Proposed Federal Funding


The President's FY2013 budget anticipates $8.168 billion for the child welfare programs and initiatives described in this report. Final FY2012 funding provided for child welfare programs was $8.009 billion. Congress did not enact final appropriations for FY2013 before the start of that federal fiscal year on October 1, 2012. However, like most federal programs, the child welfare programs discussed in this report are currently funded under a continuing resolution (P.L. 112-175), which remains in effect through March 27, 2013. For programs that receive mandatory funding, the temporary measure ensures funding is available at the level authorized in current law. For each of the child welfare programs that receive discretionary funding, the temporary funding measure generally provides support at the same level that each program received in FY2012, plus 0.612%. Most of the child welfare funding discussed in this report is provided on a mandatory basis; however, most child welfare programs receive smaller funding amounts provided on a discretionary basis. (Table 1 shows FY2012 funding levels for each child welfare program. Table 2 lists child welfare programs by their kind of funding, i.e. mandatory or discretionary.) While the 112th Congress did not complete action on legislation to provide a full year of FY2013 funding, the Senate Appropriations Committee approved legislation (S. 3295 and S. 2323) that would have provided $7.924 billion for the child welfare programs discussed in this report for FY2013. That would have provided foster care funding at the level requested by the President to meet current law funding needs but did not provide for additional funding sought by the President (under the Title IV-E foster care program) to provide financial incentives to improve the child welfare system. Implementation of that proposal requires congressional authorization (separate from appropriations) and no legislation to grant this authority is pending. During the 112th Congress, the House Appropriations committee did not act on full year FY2013 appropriations legislation for most of the child welfare programs discussed in this report.
