Family First Prevention Services Act

The Family First Prevention Services Act offers unprecedented federal support for evidence-based prevention of foster care services for mental health care, substance abuse treatment, and in-home parent skills training and adds additional requirements to ensure congregate care best practice. Through a coordinated effort that required a vast multi-disciplinary and multi-divisional effort, Utah began Family First on Oct. 1, 2019.
