Michigan now meets national standards for child welfare and foster care

LANSING, MI. (WLNS) – Six years after federal officials determined the State of Michigan did not meet national requirements for child welfare and foster care, Governor Rick Snyder announced that’s not the case anymore.

In 2009 federal officials said the Great Lakes state didn’t meet certain standards.

Michigan officials made a list of goals.

According to the governor’s administration, all of those goals have been met including enhancing our capacity to provide for children and families and enhancing accountability and workforce development.

Not only that, but the state saved more than $2 million because of those improvements.
