Family First Prevention Services Clearinghouse Releases Program and Service Ratings

The Title IV-E Prevention Services (Family First) Clearinghouse has released the first set of approved prevention programs eligible for Title IV-E reimbursement.

The Prevention Services Clearinghouse, was established by the U.S. Administration for Children and Families to conduct an objective and transparent review of research on programs and services intended to provide enhanced support to children and families and prevent foster care placements. Programs and services are rated as either well-supported, supported, promising, or does not currently meet criteria.

Six of the programs in this first set are supported or well-supported; one is promising and three do not currently meet criteria. Healthy Families America, Methadone Maintenance Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing are still under review and ratings will be released soon.
