This webpage explains each year federal State, and local child welfare agencies spend approximately $26 billion to promote the well-being of vulnerable children and their families. It then discusses how the Center for State Child Welfare Data can help child welfare agencies can turn knowledge into action through analytic tools, continuous quality improvement, and education, training, and technical assistance. Links are provided for additional information on each of these strategies, as well as for research reports from the Center for State Child Welfare Data on the use of research evidence by child welfare agencies, the dynamics of foster home recruitment and retention, and efforts and reports by the Center for State Child Welfare Data to increase transparency on aggregate data on statewide trends pertaining to key permanency indicators.
