To help children who may be in or at risk for entering the child welfare system as a result of parental substance use, Congress funded and the Children’s Bureau at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded grants to 17 regional partnerships among child welfare organizations, drug treatment facilities, and other family support systems in 15 states.
