Budget Testimony: CFSA

April 1, 2019

CLC policy attorney Aubrey Edwards-Luce recently shared her testimony at CFSA's budget hearing. Our goal for our CFSA budget review was to assess whether the proposed budget is proffering adequate investments into the supports and services that will truly make a difference for DC’s children and families. The ultimate question we have when we examine the budget is: will these investments improve outcomes for children, youth, and families? We focused our examination looking for investments in prevention, placements for children and youth in foster care, and supports for the biological parents, kin and foster families that are caring for D.C.’s kids.
