Leading Systems Change through Expansion and Infusion

Thursday, October 8, 2015 | 11-12:00 PM PT (12 PM MT, 1 PM CT, 2 PM ET)


Funded by OJJDP starting in the Fall 2014, the Statewide Systems Reform Program (SSRP) is a two-year grant initiative aimed to assist five awarded states in developing and improving statewide policies that infuse or increase the scale of effective FDC practices. This presentation will highlight the barriers of taking FDCs to scale and the solutions underway at the state level to overcome those barriers. The presentation will also highlight the opportunities of the infusion approach and the strategies undertaken by these state leaders to change the larger child welfare systems. The webinar will also highlight the utilization of a Change Leader as part of the technical assistance provided to each of the awarded states to implement their strategic plan.
