Collaboration Between TANF and Child Welfare to Improve Child Welfare Outcomes: U.S. Children’s Bureau Demonstration Grants

This synthesis report summarizes the work of several federal grantees charged with identifying and implementing models of effective collaboration between child welfare and TANF agencies. The demonstration project, which included five grantees, theorized that such models would result in improved outcomes for children, youth, and families who are involved with the child welfare system or are at risk of involvement. The report discusses key program interventions and activities, including joint and cross-training, data-sharing technology, data assessments, and service integration procedures.
