New Policy Brief Highlights Use of Title IV-E Funding to Support Social Work Students

For two decades, Title IV-E funding has been an important source of support for BSW and MSW students to be encouraged to puruse child welfare careers.  The Social Work Policy Institute has created a new brief, Education Social Workers for Child Welfare Practice: The Status of Using Title IV-E Funding to Support BSW & MSW Education, that describes the current status of the use of Title IV-E funding in social work education, addressing the value of this funding to promote professional social work practice in public child welfare agencies and describing some of the policy implementation challenges.

  1. I am highly interested in the Title IV-E program. I was very disappointed to find out that the grant was not available to students for the 2012/1013 applicants at Savannah State University.
    The program not only helps students with tuition, but allows on-the-job training in a field that is highly demanding and in need of more workers. Children are the future of the world and many of these children need guidance and tools for their success. These resources and tools can only be made available through social workers who have the right education and training.
    Another important factor is that the program does not focus soley on children, but families as well. To reach a child, often social workers must go through the family. Our country is in great need now and will be for several years to come. The Title IV-E grant is an important piece to getting America back on the right track.
    The Title IV-E is beneficial is so many ways and the funding must be made available. I would be overjoyed at the chance of a Title IV-E grant.
