The Child and Family Services Review is a collaborative effort between the federal and state governments to monitor child welfare services in each state.   The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children's Bureau conducts the review.

There are three phases to the Child and Family Services Review.  In the first phase, the State develops a comprehensive assessment of child welfare services throughout the state.  The second phase of the review consists of an onsite review, conducted by both federal and state partners.  In the third phase of the review, the state develops a program improvement plan that it will implement over the following two-year time period. 

The third federal review will occur June 5-9, 2017.
