New York


New York The IDTA partnering organizations consisted of the New York Office of Children and Families, New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, and the Office of Court Administration. The IDTA sought to improve child safety, permanency and well-being by supporting sustainable family recovery. The state participated in two rounds of IDTA, seeking to build on the collaborative relationships and products resulting from the previous IDTA, to address new or emerging cross-systems issues and challenges, and to coordinate and leverage other initiatives and partnerships.

The IDTA process in New York yielded a collaborative practice guidance tool targeted to various organizational levels within the three lead systems, including:

      This brief summarizes the accomplishments, key findings, and conclusions that emerged from three In-Depth Technical Assistance (IDTA) Infants with Prenatal Substance Exposure (IPSE) sites: Delaware, Minnesota, and New York. Between 2016 and 2018, the program focused on developing policies and protocols with state teams to successfully implement Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act requirements, especially those that pertain to hospital notifications to Child Protective Services, Plans of Safe Care, and data collection and reporting. This brief presents lessons generated over the course of their engagement with IDTA-IPSE that are related to partnerships and collaboration as well as to practices and policies that affect outcomes for infants and families. More information about the work of these three sites can be found in the complete Infants with Prenatal Substance Exposure Initiative Final Report 2016-2018.
