Program Description

The Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF) announces the availability of funds for a 17-month national Quality Improvement Center for Research-Based Infant-Toddler Court Teams grant to provide technical assistance and implement projects to fully develop and expand research-based child welfare infant-toddler court teams. The QIC will provide technical assistance and conduct projects in collaboration with the courts; state, county, or tribal child welfare systems; and other community-based agencies to increase their capacity to incorporate evidence-based practices to strengthen parenting and promote healthy development for infants and toddlers involved with child welfare. This national center will assist jurisdictions to expand and build infrastructure capacity across the courts, child welfare agencies, and other behavioral health and early childhood systems to ensure that infants and toddlers and their caregivers have access to comprehensive, high-quality evidence-based parenting, child development, and behavioral health services. The QIC will also disseminate promising practices and policies to support the healthy growth and development of infants and toddlers in child welfare and their families.
