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.
