The Administration for Children and Families announces funding for five-year demonstration projects that support the development, implementation, and evaluation of strategies that embrace proactive efforts to build on the strengths of families, including those at high risk for child maltreatment. The projects will enhance the capacity of communities to address the well-being needs of families before more formal strategies, practices, or activities are warranted. This funding supports child welfare systems with the solidification and integration of partnerships among local services and supports that strengthen and address the needs of families before they come to the attention of the child welfare agency.
