Changes in State Financing of Child Welfare Services 1998 - 2000 by Funding Source

April 25, 2003

Abstract

This 50-state table details changes in state spending on abused and neglected children between state fiscal years 1998 and 2000. It includes revenue from federal sources (Title IV-E, Title IV-B, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Social Security Block Grant, Medicaid, and Supplemental Security Income) and state and local spending. Collectively, states spent at least $20 billion on child welfare services in SFY 2000, a 20 percent increase from SFY 1998. The largest increase was seen in spending from federal funds, primarily TANF and Title IV-E, raising the federal share of total spending to 49 percent from 45 percent in SFY 1998.
