Training Description

The state of Florida has participated in the Title IV-E Demonstration Waiver for more than a decade. The waiver provided states with an opportunity to use federal funds more flexibly and given them the ability to assess innovative approaches to the child welfare service delivery and financing for children in care. The Federal Title IV-E waiver ended September 30, 2019. The state of Florida has returned to traditional Title IV-E claiming. This workshop will discuss the Federal IV-E requirements, documentation of Title IV-E, and lessons learned from several of the Path Forward Title IV-E initiatives.
