Substance-Exposed Infants In-Depth Technical Assistance (SEI-IDTA) Initiative

Children and Family Futures (CFF), facilitates the Substance-Exposed Infants In-Depth Technical Assistance (SEI-IDTA) initiative through its National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare (NCSACW) contract.

The SEI-IDTA program uses a combination of proven change management strategies and tools coupled with relationship-building and individual coaching with sites to facilitate policy and practice changes, measure performance, strengthen partnerships, sustain successful collaborative projects and innovations and achieve measurable outcomes. The first round of SEI-IDTA sites included:

  • Connecticut
  • Kentucky
  • Minnesota
  • New Jersey
  • Virginia

CFF is currently working with Delaware and New York in the second round of SEI-IDTA.
