Welcome to the NCIC
NCIC is one of five regionally-focused Child Welfare Implementation Centers to join the Children's Bureau Training & Technical Assistance Network. We engage with State and Tribal child welfare agencies in Regions 1 & 2 to provide resources and support aimed at improving the quality and effectiveness of child welfare services for children, youth and families. The NCIC Team works with child welfare leaders and managers in Regions 1 & 2 to:
- enhance agency and tribal capacity to effectively implement and sustain systemic change;
- facilitate communication and peer-to-peer networking;
- contribute knowledge about effective implementation in the child welfare field; and
- support intensive implementation projects.
