ACF Confidentiality Toolkit (June 2014)

Resource collecting and summarizing federal confidentiality laws applicable to social services programs. 

"With publication of this, our ACF Confidentiality Toolkit, we hope to support state and local efforts by bringing greater clarity to the rules governing confidentiality in ACF and certain related programs, by providing examples of how confidentiality requirements can be addressed and met in a manner fully consistent with governing laws and underlying policies; by including sample Memoranda of Understandings and data sharing agreements; and by providing guidance that we hope can be helpful in efforts to move forward in states and localities."
