The federal Administration for Children & Families’ Children’s Bureau awards each state a Court Improvement Program (CIP) grant to assess the state’s child welfare system and make recommendations on how to improve the court’s role in achieving stable, permanent homes for children in foster care.  Since 1999, the Wyoming Supreme Court’s Children’s Justice Project (CJP) has administered Wyoming’s Court Improvement Project.  In October of 1999, the Supreme Court appointed an advisory council consisting of judges, attorneys, DFS representatives, and other professionals involved in the child protection system to oversee the Children’s Justice Project.  The Children's Justice Project is currently overseen by a Grant Coordinator supervised by the advisory council and the Supreme Court.  The Children's Justice Project continues to develop data-driven solutions to improve outcomes for abused and neglect children and their families, improve the timeliness and quality of hearings, enhance the quality of legal representation, and provide systemwide resources and training.

"What works best is anything that increases the quality and number of relationships in a child's life.  People, not programs, change people."
