Child and Family Services Plan


Congress requires states to submit to the federal Children’s Bureau, an office of the Administration for Children & Families, a child welfare five year strategic plan - the Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP). The CFSP describes Iowa’s mission, vision, goals, objectives, and activities to strengthen our child welfare system to promote the outcomes of safety, permanency, and well-being for the children and families served. Iowa submits an Annual Progress and Services Report (APSR) detailing annual progress towards the goals and objectives described in the CFSP as well as activities planned for the next federal fiscal year.  

    If you have questions or comments regarding Iowa's Child and Family Service Plan (CFSP) or Iowa's Child and Family Services Review (CFSR), including the Program Improvement Plan (PIP), please contact Kara Lynn Regula at or 515-281-8977.
