Federal Collaboration – From its inception, the Children’s Bureau worked closely with other Federal agencies on research and programs pertaining to children’s health and safety. The first formal body to coordinate work among Federal agencies concerned with the well-being of children and youth was the Interdepartmental Committee on Children and Youth, formed in 1948.

Major responsibilities of this body included planning and conducting follow-up from White House Conferences on Children and Youth in 1950 and 1960. In 1988, amendments to the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) created a Federal Inter-Agency Task Force specifically focused on child abuse and neglect, a precursor to today’s Federal Interagency Work Group on the same topic.
