Implementation and Systems Change – The Children’s Bureau funds five regionally based Implementation Centers, which focus on implementation of strategies to achieve sustainable, systemic change that enhances the lives of children, youth, and families.
In addition to working with the T&TA Network to provide consultation and support, each center has formal partnerships with States and Tribes in its region to execute programs. Other Implementation Center tasks vary by region and include:
  • Facilitating peer networking across State and Tribal systems via webinars and conference calls, listservs, regional forums, learning communities, and training opportunities
  • Providing expertise, resources, and technical assistance needed to enhance agency capacity to implement and sustain systemic change
  • Building and disseminating resources, knowledge, and best practices about effective implementation in child welfare
  • Engaging families and youth in achieving systems change
  • Integrating cultural and linguistic competence
