This resource, Implementing the Family First Prevention Services Act, is a tool to help ensure full and prompt implementation of the opportunities created by Family First. This guide was developed by Children's Defense Fund and included contributions from national partners - ChildFocus, American Academy of Pediatrics, Generations United, FosterClub, Juvenile Law Center, and National Indian Child Welfare Association

The guide is a question-and-answer-style resource containing commonly (and not-so-commonly) asked questions about the many important provisions in Family First. The guide is extensive, but by no means exhaustive. Knowing that the Children’s Bureau continues to release guidance related to Family First and that implementation will bring new challenges and questions, the guide will be regularly updated with new content.
