Evaluation of Utah’s Title IV-E Waiver
- Mary Armstrong, PhD
This evaluation examines the Title IV-E Waiver, which enables federal funds to be more flexibly spent on preventing children who come into contact with Utah’s child welfare system from being placed in out-of-home care. The purpose of the evaluation is to assess the effectiveness of Utah’s implementation of the Waiver at the state level and at pilot sites. The process evaluation also includes a needs assessment of service gaps and fidelity of implementation at the practice level.
