Family First has raised many questions among State, local, and Tribal child welfare agencies regarding implementation. To help agencies implement Family First, The Children’s Defense released Implementing Family First a guide developed by a coalition of organizations “intended to offer the clearest possible information about the provisions of the law and the congressional intent behind it, based on a careful review of statutory language, agency guidance, and additional analysis by multiple organizations and partners who were intimately involved in the support and passage of the legislation.” This podcast features a conversation with representatives from three of the seven organizations who collaborated on the guide.
