FFPSA Data and Resources

Overview

The Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) reforms federal financing with the intention of keeping children safely at home, and if that is not possible, utilizing the least restrictive placement based on the needs of the child. FFPSA limits Title IV-E care and maintenance payments for “child care institutions” (e.g., agency operated boarding home, group home, group residence, institutions), and authorizes use of Title IV-E funds for certain types of prevention services. Because New York State has requested a 2-year delay for FFPSA implementation, FFPSA will begin in New York on September 29th, 2021.

OCFS has created a variety of reports, tools and other resources to help with FFPSA planning and implementation. Under the tools and resources section, you will find tools designed to help you interact with and interpret the data reports provided. The Statewide and Regional Data section contains reports aggregated at the New York State, New York City, Rest of State (ROS) level, with ROS further broken out by OCFS regional office divisions. Statewide data reports containing county-level break-outs can also be found here. Data reports limited to a single county within the state is available under the County Level Data section.

Tools and Resources

Bubble Chart Data Packet Tutorial

The FFPSA Bubble Chart Data Packet was created to help counties visualize patterns in their current congregate care practice and identify ways in which these practices may be impacted by FFPSA implementation.

This tutorial will walk you through the materials contained in the Bubble Chart Data Packet, including step-by-step instructions on how to read a bubble chart. The tutorial also provides important information and context about how the bubble charts were created, and users are strongly encouraged to read through the tutorial before utilizing the bubble charts or supplemental tables.

FFPSA Goal Monitoring Worksheet

The FFPSA Goal Monitoring Worksheet is meant to help counties monitor their goals in preparation for FFPSA implementation. It can be used in conjunction with Data Warehouse or Outcome Monitoring reports to determine the number of children that the county would need to move (either into relative homes or out of institution/group care) to meet their FFPSA goals.

Data Warehouse Video

This Data Warehouse video takes you through the new FFPSA reports available in the Data Warehouse. The video goes through how to access the reports, how to run the reports, and how the reports can be interpreted.

Included in the report are: children placed with relatives at initial admission; those admitted to different types of relative care, including direct placement; those discharged to relatives, including discharges to KinGAP. Data is updated annually.

Children in Care and Custody (All Statuses) by Setting Type

This report provides a point-in-time look at all children in care on a specific date, and can be used to understand the demographics and histories of children in care on any given day. The report is broken out by setting type (e.g. foster boarding home, approved relative home, institution, group residence, group home, agency operated boarding home, supervised independent living program), allowing for comparisons between these groups. Other variables in this report include demographic information, case type, case status (child is in 24-hour care or absent), child goal, time in facility, and time in care.

Number of Children in Care and Custody (in 24-hour Care and Absent Status) by County and Agency

These reports provide a point-in-time look at all children in care, and is organized first by home county and then by voluntary agency (or first by voluntary agency and then by home county), allowing users to see how many children from each county are housed within a particular agency on a specific date. The report also provides break outs by setting type (e.g. foster boarding home, approved relative home, institution, group residence, group home, agency operated boarding home, supervised independent living program) and by gender.
