Administration for Children and Families (through a sub-contract with ICF, International)

CSF is working with ICF to provide technical assistance and product development for the Capacity Building Center for States

The federal government funds ICF, Inc. to operate the Capacity Building Center for States, which is the primary technical assistance entity for state child welfare systems, and which replaced the former network of National Child Welfare Resource Centers funded by the federal government. CSF operates under a contract with ICF, Inc., to develop technical assistance resources for state child welfare agencies to use in developing, strengthening and operating their child welfare continuous quality improvement functions. To date, CSF has developed training curricula for use nationally in Continuous Quality Improvement in public child welfare agencies and will be providing technical assistance to state child welfare agencies seeking to improve their CQI programs.
