Child and Family Services Review

December 11, 2017

The Children's Bureau of the Federal Department of Health and Human Services approved Iowa’s plan for a state conducted Child and Family Services Review in 2018. They also acknowledge the hard work Iowa has done to strengthen the case review system and partner with the Children’s Bureau in the process. 

The bureau worked with DHS staff to verify Iowa’s ability to use its case review process consistent with the criteria in Technical Bulletin #7. Iowa’s case review process meets the criteria in the technical bulletin and the Children's Bureau will use the State's case review process and results for CFSR purposes. Iowa’s onsite review period is April 1-September 30, 2018.
