Child Welfare Financing SFY 2014: A Survey of Federal, State, and Local Expenditures
Child Trends conducted a ninth national survey of child welfare agency expenditures, for SFY 2014. This survey round revealed a 1 percent decrease in total spending (as compared to the previous round), with a decrease in federal funds spent by child welfare agencies, and a slight increase in state/local funds. However, a more dramatic picture emerges when trends are examined over the past decade. The Child Welfare Financing SFY 2014: A Survey of Federal, State, and Local Expenditures report is one of an array of resources compiled from the survey’s findings. Others include a national overview and state-level data. Visit the Child Trends website to access all the resources.
