In order to be eligible for IV-E funding, prevention services must be rated and approved by the Title IV-E Prevention Services Clearinghouse.
The Title IV- E Prevention Services Clearinghouse established by the Administration for Children and Families within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is evaluating which programs meet the Evidence-Based Practice criteria under Family First. The Clearinghouse lists the programs it has reviewed on its website.
To be reimbursable under the Family First Act in Georgia, a service also has to be included in the state’s IV-E Plan.
The five services included in Georgia’s plan are:
- Brief Strategic Family Therapy
- Functional Family Therapy
- Healthy Families America
- Multi-systemic Therapy
- Parents as Teachers
