New State Child Welfare Policy Database

Child Trends, with support from Casey Family Programs, recently launched a new clearinghouse for state child welfare policy. The Child Welfare Policy Database catalogues information about laws, procedures, and agency guidance for every state and the District of Columbia. You can review information by topic or by state for a variety of policies including kinship laws, child welfare expenditures, and policies related to older foster youth. will be using and linking to this great resource as we help elected officials (as well as administrators, advocates, practitioners, and researchers) remain current on the most effective policies that protect the nation's most vulnerable children.

For policies to support Building Strong and Stable Families.
