Children, their parents, or kinship care providers who are receiving DFCS Family Preservation services will be eligible for Title IV-E prevention services. Expectant and parenting youth who are in foster care are also eligible for prevention services. The categories of prevention services include in-home parenting skills training; mental health prevention and treatment services; and substance abuse prevention and treatment services.
The income of the person or family receiving services has no impact on eligibility.
Prevention services may only be provided if they are addressed in the child’s prevention plan.
