Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP)

​​The federal government (Children’s Bureau of the Administration for Children and Families) requires each state’s child welfare agency to create a five-year Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP). The CFSP is directly tied to federal government funding to support Oregon Child Welfare programs. The CFSP includes reporting on Oregon’s performance on a number of measures, as well as specific reporting that is tied to each specific funding stream. This plan also informs the federal government of Oregon’s plans to continually improve our support of children and families in Oregon.

Child and Family Services Review (CFSR)​

​The federal government periodically conducts the Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSR) of state child welfare systems to achieve three goals.
  1. Ensure conformity with federal child welfare requirements
  2. Determine what is actually happening to children and families as they are engaged in child welfare services
  3. Assist states in helping children and families achieve positive outcomes
The CFSR is conducted in two parts: a Statewide Assessment and an Onsite Review.

Title IV-B Annual Progress and Service Report (APSR)*

*Includes Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) reports.​

​The federal government requires each state's child welfare agency to report annually on its progress in achieving the goals laid out in the Child and Family Services plan (as described above) in the Annual Progress and Service Report (APSR). As with the Child and Family Services Plan, Oregon is required to report on a number of performance measures as well as specific use of individual funding streams. The Annual Progress and Service Report (APSR) is also an update to the Child and Family Services Plan, identifying progress on outlined plan goals and any changes to Oregon's plan.​​

Title IV-E State Plans

Oregon receives federal funding through Title IV-E of the Social Security Act which is an important funding stream for foster care costs. It provides for federal reimbursement for a portion of the maintenance and administrative costs of foster care for children who meet specified federal eligibility requirements. Each state has a Title IV-E State Plan that lays out the state’s specific participation in IV-E programs and funding and identifies the state laws and regulations that have been enacted to comply with federal laws and regulations associated with the funding. ​

Social Services Block Grant (SSBG)

​​​​Title XX of the Social Security Act gives States increased flexibility to offer a wider range of services to a broader population of adults and children. By federal law, SSBG funds must be administered by the same agency that administers child welfare and foster care/adoption programs - this report describes the services funded with SSBG within ODHS.​
