    Annual Program Service Review

    The Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare’s Office of Children, Youth and Families is the state agency that is responsible to lead, plan, direct, and coordinate statewide children’s programs including social services provided directly by County Children and Youth Agencies and department's Bureau of Juvenile Justice Services through the youth development centers and youth forestry camps. The Office of Children Youth and Families is responsible for the development of the State’s Child and Family Services Plan.

    Title IV-B Part 1 funds for child welfare services are distributed to all 67 County Children and Youth Agencies based on the number of children served in each county. The counties fund child welfare services that are within the state-specified guidelines. The state guidelines direct the county agencies to use these funds for in-home services, (excluding child protective services and general protective services), community-based and institutional services (excluding secure facilities) that are not funded with Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, Medicaid or Title IV-E funds.

    Pennsylvania’s Annual Progress and Services Report for fiscal year 2011 was approved by the federal Administration for Children and Families on Sept. 8, 2010 and is now posted on the Department of Public Welfare’s website at this hyperlink:
