2018 National Title IV-E Roundtable
Program Details

This year’s program will focus on both the fiscal and programmatic aspects of public, tribal, and university child welfare training and education partnerships. It will provide specific tracks for certain interest groups, including hands-on work sessions for state and university fiscal administrators, to agency or university program leadership, and to those designing educational or training programming. 
There will be opportunities for peer to peer learning across jurisdictions and we encourage you to come as a team from your jurisdiction, bringing program and fiscal leadership from university and agency partners so that you may learn together.

Previous conferences have taught us the value of learning together. As in years past, we will offer opportunities for team consultation with those who have expertise in funding these complex partnerships. We are working hard to develop a rich experience for you at the National IV-E Roundtable Conference.

Following her Florida experience, Kay worked for the ACF Region IV Office reviewing and approving Title IV-E claims of the eight Southeastern states.  Her career then led her to her current leadership and consulting role with PCG, where she has worked with over 30 states, counties and tribes on making sure the partnership between state, county and tribes can successfully fund the work serving the most vulnerable children and families.  A priority for Kay and her work is to ensure that funding strategies reflect the most current regulations, policies and directives from the federal government to provide for the  federal share of child welfare program support.
