DFPS Releases Implementation Plan for Community-Based Care

DFPS has released a plan that describes the department's expectations, goals, and approach to implementing Community-Based Care (CBC). The plan includes two associated reports by the Center for State Child Welfare Data. This plan serves as the FY 2019 annual update to the CBC implementation plan. DFPS anticipates releasing the next update to this plan in December 2019, which will include any changes to the catchment area boundaries, and/or implementation strategy informed by the May 2019 Request for Information for CBC, and the results of the initial phase of the Texas Tech Process Evaluation of start-up activities in Catchment Areas 2, 8a and Stage II in 3b.
