This chapter reviews the history of the IV-E waiver program and discusses some alternative proposals for promoting flexibility and innovation. In 2006, Congress did not renew the Health and Human Services' (HHS) authority to grant new child welfare waivers. The chapter offers a set of recommendations for improving the use of IV-E waivers if Congress were ever to revive this program to promote results-oriented accountability (ROA) in child welfare.
