Launch of Family First Prevention Services Act Resource Center

COA launches a site with comprehensive resources about FFPSA and accreditation.

COA has kept careful watch on the needs of the field after the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) was signed in 2018. In conversations with providers, advocacy groups, and state officials, it became apparent that information broadcast and resource flow has become a challenge. As new information and resources regarding FFPSA are being produced regularly, agency staff are spending their limited time seeking out these tools.

With the volume of information available and time it takes to sort through it, COA wanted to create a one-stop shop to direct users to resources and information on FFPSA and the accreditation process. The COA FFPSA Resource Center includes:

•    Information and links to upcoming trainings and events,
•    Tools to assist agencies in choosing an accreditor,
•    Federal guidance,
•    National and state news, and
•    Information to assist agencies already engaged in the accreditation process.
