Building Implementation and Evaluation Capacity in Child Welfare

New Resources Available for Building Implementation and Evaluation Capacity in Child Welfare The Children's Bureau (CB) has announced the release of three important new resources from the Permanency Innovations Initiative (PII), a 5-year, $100 million Presidential Initiative designed to support six Grantees to develop and implement innovative intervention strategies to reduce long-term foster care stays and improve child and family outcomes.  These new resources include:

  • PII Approach: Building Implementation and Evaluation Capacity in Child Welfare This extensive, technical report explains the concepts and processes of the PII Approach as a framework for program and systems change. 
  • The PII Approach Brief: Building Implementation and Evaluation Capacity in Child Welfare This brief highlights and summarizes, in a non-technical style, the key details and concepts of the PII Approach. 
  • The PII Approach Infographic This resource provides a compelling graphic perspective to introduce the PII Approach or enhance understanding for those who have read the report or the brief.
