FFTA 17th Annual Public Institute and Advocacy Day
May 4-5, 2020 ~ Washington DC


Join child welfare professionals from across the U.S. at the FFTA 17th Annual Public Policy Institute and TFC Advocacy Day in Washington, DC on May 4-5, 2020. This is the only Public Policy Institute and Advocacy Day focused on matters pertaining to treatment family care and family-focused treatment services.

We are developing our agenda but you can be sure that we will cover the timeliest issues on Federal policy and regulations that impact your agency and the children and families that you serve. Discussions will be led by experts representing Congress, the White House Administration, state child welfare administrators, providers and national advocacy groups.

FFPSA and more
While we will provide you with updates on new legislation relating to the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA), progress on FFPSA implementation, the evolution of the IVE-E Prevention Services Clearinghouse, and how your agency can stay ahead of the curve; there are other Federal legislation and policies that you need to be aware of. All of these also impact service provisions, including treatment family care, child abuse prevention, religious exemption, and trauma-informed care.

TFC Advocacy Day
It is critical that we have representation from providers in every state at our TFC Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill. There are many candidates running for various offices across the country and you may have noticed that few of them are talking about children’s issues. WE have to be the ones who bring their attention to matters affecting vulnerable children, youth and families, and Capitol Hill is a crucial stop on our advocacy journey. If this will be your first time, don’t worry, we will equip you with talking points and support to prepare you for a successful visit on the Hill.

Mark your calendar now
Stay tuned for further details but plan now to attend this unique program. Plan to bring others from your state so that your presence has high impact when you meet with your Senators and Representatives on Capitol Hill.
