Results for America applauds and supports the Family First Prevention Services Act of 2016 because it allocates federal funds to evidence-based prevention services that will improve outcomes for children and families by reducing unnecessary foster care placements and improving child health and safety. By giving states flexibility to use federal foster care dollars for services that have been shown to work, such as parent training and home visiting, we can positively impact the health and safety of children and families.
