FCRO Publications

The Nebraska Foster Care Review Office (FCRO) independently tracks children and youth in out-of-home care, reviews their cases, collects and analyzes data related to the children and youth, and reports on these findings. Reports statistical data, and recommendations on conditions and outcomes, including any needed corrective actions.

Since 2012, per statute the FCRO is to issue at least three quarterly reports each year to the Legislature, stakeholders, and the public, and issue an annual report due on December 1st of each year. Occasionally statute also requires the issuance of reports on specific topics. Those mandated reports, along with other pertinent reports are available for your review.

LB905 (2014) created the State Ward Permanency Pilot as of July 1, 2014, providing $1,500,000 in general funds. The Project serves state wards who are eligible for services through the DHHS Division of Developmental Disabilities, but do not qualify for priority funding under the Developmental Disabilities Service Act. State wards receiving an enhanced level of care or otherwise assessed to have above-average habilitative needs are to be given priority to participate in the pilot.
