Paying to reform how the state cares for abused children: Feds say state missing out on big pot of money | The Connecticut Mirror

Paying to reform how the state cares for abused children: Feds say state missing out on big pot of money | The Connecticut Mirror | Child Protection  or  Reunification Alternative Perspective | Scoop.it

Connecticut has made significant strides in reducing the number of abused and neglected children in foster care, but its achievement is costing it millions of dollars in federal aid.

Over the last five years, the state’s Department of Children and Families has reduced the number of children in state custody by 20 percent, officials say, bringing the number to a historic low.

This new approach has won approval from child advocates, who prefer keeping families intact whenever possible. But it has cost the state about $49 million in reimbursements during that time.

They cutting cost but not loss, seeing that money can be allocated to do things it was not received to do by government creating a catch 21 or already having one in place and  the public not know but those i n authority do. When the Foster Care children, young adults are kicked out of the system do they get reperation from the government like 40 acres and a mule but in today's living standards or do they get the door opened by the government and a swift kick In the buttocks and told to get to steppin. Go out in the world and do something no more gover nment assistance for you.
