The Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) was signed in to law in February 2018 as part of the Bipartisan Budget Act (HR. 1892). Its purpose was to turn the focus of the child welfare system toward keeping children safely with their families to avoid the trauma that results when children are placed in out-of-home care.
The Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA) was first authorized in 1974 and established core protections for incarcerated youth. The Act expired in 2007. On December 13, 2018, Congress passed H.R. 6964 with broad bipartisan support. Major changes were made to the Act.
