FindingsIntent2012 c 204: "(1) The legislature finds that the federal child and family services improvement and innovation act provides an important new opportunity for Washington state to flexibly use federal funding, traditionally limited to foster care, to achieve the following outcomes: Increase permanency for all infants, children, and youth by reducing the time spent in foster care placements when possible and promoting a successful transition to adulthood for older youth; increase the positive outcomes for infants, children, youth, and families in their homes and communities, including tribal communities; improve the safety and well-being of infants, children, and youth; and prevent child abuse and neglect and the reentry of infants, children, and youth into foster care.
(2) The legislature finds that the licensed out-of-home foster care caseload has declined by eighteen percent from fiscal year 2008 to fiscal year 2011. The legislature further finds that under the current system, as caseloads decline, fewer state and federal funds are available in the child welfare budget for prevention and reunification services to continue improving outcomes.
(3) The legislature recognizes the need to reinvest savings related to foster care caseload reductions into effective efforts that improve outcomes. The legislature intends to maximize limited resources by continuing to focus on efforts to improve child safety, child permanency, and child well-being in Washington state." [ 2012 c 204 § 1.]
