Description of the CB Grant That Funded These Projects: 
In 2006, CB published a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for Collaboration Between Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Child Welfare (CW) to Improve Child Welfare Program Outcomes. The FOA was based on the premise that the needs of families and children could be better met through a collaborative response between agencies addressing CW and TANF, as well as partnerships with other social services. Funding was available for demonstration projects to assist jurisdictions over 5 years in planning, implementing, and evaluating collaborative efforts. The projects were intended to support activities such as interagency planning, policy development, family assessment, blending interagency finances, development of information and data sharing mechanisms, addressing confidentiality issues, and cross-training.
