Webinar to Examine Strategies for Promoting Equity With the Family First Act 

The Annie E. Casey and William T. Grant foundations are hosting a webinar, to explore how child welfare leaders can use the Family First Prevention Services Act to achieve equitable outcomes for children and families.

During the webinar ― part of the Leading With Evidence: Informing Practice With Research series ― experts will discuss:

  • new funding opportunities under the Family First Act for evidence-based prevention programs that support families and prevent the need for foster care;
  • how to use the law to create more equitable outcomes when many evidence-based programs are not validated for children and families of color or delivered in the context of identity and culture; and
  • how to use the law to engage communities, encourage innovation and invest in building further evidence to promote equity.
