EXPLANATION OF CHANGES

Fifteen new positions, eight professional and seven clerical, are requested to assist in the implementation of two new programs: project grants for health care and services for school and preschool children and grants for training for professional personnel for care of crippled children, especially mentally retarded children and children with multiple handicaps. Staff in a number of spe cialized fields, including pediatrics, dentistry, nursing, and hospital administration are requested to perform this work.

The legal authority of the Children's Bureau for serving the children of the United States is contained in the basic act of April 9, 1912, creating the Bureau (42 U.S.C., ch. 6) and in title V of the Social Security Act under delegations by the Secretary of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare and the Commissioner of Welfare (42 U.S.C., ch. 7, subch. V).

Under the basic act of 1912, the Bureau is charged with investigating and reporting “upon all matters pertaining to the welfare of children and child life among all classes of our people.” The Bureau studies many types of conditions affecting the lives of children, compiles data and makes recommendations to improve practices in child health and child welfare programs, and helps establish standards for the care of children.

Under title V of the Social Security Act, as amended, the Bureau administers grants for eight programs: (1) maternal and child health services; (2) services for crippled children; (3) child welfare services; (4) research, training, or demonstration projects in child welfare; (5) special project grants for maternity and infant care; (6) special project grants for health of school and preschool children; (7) training of professional personnel for the care of crippled children particularly mentally retarded children and children with multiple handicaps (authorized to become effective in 1967); and (8) research projects relating to maternal and child health and crippled children's services. The amount authorized for maternal and child health services, services for crippled children and child welfare services in 1967 is $50 million each. The 1967 authorization for special project grants for maternity and infant care is $30 million. The two programs authorized by the Social Security Amendments of 1965, special project grants for health of school and preschool children and training of professional personnel for the care of crippled children are authorized at $35 million and $5 million respectively for 1967. In administering these grants the Bureau works with State and local health and welfare departments, crippled children's agencies, institutions of higher learning including schools of social work, medical schools and teaching hospitals, and agencies and organizations engaged in child health and welfare research.

The Bureau in carrying out its other functions works with voluntary child health and wefare agencies and with professional and civic organizations. It maintains a continuing close working relationship with the National Committee on Children and Youth, with the Council of National Organizations, the membership of which is made up of national voluntary agencies concerned with children and youth, and with State committees on children and youth.

The Bureau provides the secretariat for the Interdepartmental Committee on Children and Youth which is made up of 11 Federal departments and independent agencies with representatives from 38 operating units of these departments and agencies whose programs affect children and youth.

The Bureau cooperates with other nations in the furtherance of health and welfare activities for mothers and children. It make plans for long-term and short-term trainees and observers from other countries who come to the United States through the United Nations, World Health Organization, the Agency for International Development, or independently. Upon request, the Bureau assists in the recruiting of maternal and child health and child welfare personnel for service abroad.

PROGRAM EMPHASIS FOR 1966 AND 1967 The passage of the 1965 Amendments to the Social Security Act greatly increased the responsibility and the workload of the Bureau. A supplemental appropriation for 1966 provided funds to finance: (1) the increased authorizations for maternal and child health services and services for crippled children; (2) the newly authorized program of special project grants for health of school and preschool children and (3) the first-year costs necessary to begin implementing the new amendments.

In 1966 and 1967, the Children's Bureau will continue to give priority to programs for mentally retarded children. In these years special attention will be given to initiating the new program for training personnel for services for crippled children, particularly mentally retarded children and children with multiple handicaps.

It will be necessary for the Children's Bureau to provide the States and local communities with information about the new programs authorized by the 1965 amendments, to develop guides and standards which will govern project approval and expenditure of grant funds under these new programs, and to develop policies and procedures. In addition to the new programs, the amendments added two requirements for the on-going maternal and child health and crippled children's programs: (1) that a State must make a satisfactory showing that it is extending the provision of services, and (2) must provide for payment of reasonable cost of in-patient hospital services provided under the

In their ongoing activities in both 1966 and 1967, the divisions will continue to give special attention to services for children who have congenital heart disease, or who have speech and hearing impairments; and to the development of

State plan.
