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 Florida’s child welfare system from being placed in out-of-home care. The purpose of the evaluation is to assess the effectiveness of Florida’s implementation of the Waiver at the state and lead agency level. The process evaluation also includes a needs assessment of service gaps and fidelity of implementation at the practice level.
