NPCS Project 2023: Travel Costs

Grants and Contracts Details


ABSTRACT In 2018, CFP began supporting the development of an initiative, currently referred to as National Partnership for Child Safety: Applying Safety Science to Advance a Safety Culture in Child Welfare (Safety Collaborative). The Safety Collaborative members (involving 7 jurisdictions in 2018, expanded to 11 in 2019 and 19 jurisdiction in 2020) committed to applying the principles of safety science to improve safety and prevent child maltreatment related fatalities. Modeled after other safety industries, strategies include: a team-based approach to creating and supporting a safety-based culture, standardized process for critical incident reviews, and sharing data to foster learning and improvements among the members. The Safety Collaborative grew to 33 jurisdictions in 2021 representing over 50% of all the children in care. In 2023, the Partnership is expecting continued growth. CFP will continue to support the development of this Partnership for Child Safety through technical assistance from the Center for Population Health at the University of KY (service provider). Service Provider will provide technical assistance to the expanded cohort of 35+ child welfare jurisdictions who are members of the collaborative and to help build capacity as needed for other jurisdictions interested in joining the Safety Collaborative. The technical assistance will focus on applying a set of strategies including: 1. A standardized platform for critical incident review and reporting of data 2. Comparative critical incident and team culture data 3. Access to a library of Spaced Ed curricula 4. Shared cross-jurisdictional safety notices. The IPH Center will work with CFP to identify and onboard new jurisdictions throughout the contract period. This could include providing consultation and technical assistance to jurisdictions to prepare them for NPCS membership.
