$15M PROJECT AIMS TO IMPROVE CHILD WELFARE WORKFORCE
$15M project aims to improve child welfare workforce – High staff turnover and other workforce challenges plague child welfare agencies. Ultimately, that can hurt kids and families who need help. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is leading a $15 million research effort to strengthen the nation’s child welfare agency workforce and improve children’s lives.
The university is launching the Quality Improvement Center for Workforce Development with a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families-Children’s Bureau. Nebraska’s Center on Children, Families and the Law will receive the $15 million grant over five years.
