Program and Fiscal Design Elements of Child Welfare Privatization Initiatives


In 2006, ASPE funded the Child Welfare Privatization Initiatives Project to provide information to state and local child welfare administrators who are considering or implementing privatization reforms. The project will produce six papers on a range of topics providing insights about factors that should be considering when approaching or improving upon privatization efforts. This second paper describes choices faced by agencies as they design child welfare privatization initiatives. It is primarily descriptive and is intended to illustrate how various existing initiatives have defined their target populations and program scope, as well as how they have structured payments and distributed financial risk.
