Permanency Technical Assistance Workshops


Achieving timely child safety, permanency, and wellbeing are the foundational principles underlying the procedures and decisions in all child protection proceedings. The purpose of the CJI Permanency Technical Assistance Project is to improve time to permanency for children in out of home placement, in accordance with state and federal statutes, Minnesota Rules of Juvenile Protection Procedure, and Judicial Branch performance measures. 

Permanency Performance Measure Goals

The Judicial Branch has set the following performance measure goals for achieving timely permanency for children removed from home: 90% of children will reach permanency within 12 months of removal from home, and 99% of children will reach permanency within 18 months.
