To ensure child well-being for children and youth placed in a children’s residential facility and/or foster residence setting, Minnesota fully implemented the court review requirements of the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) on September 30, 2021. This course will identify the steps for placement in a Qualified Residential Treatment Program (QRTP), outline new requirements for QRTP assessment of the child by a qualified individual and engagement of a family and permanency team, and identify changes in the court process for review of voluntary and involuntary QRTP placements.
