NYC Administration for Children's Services: The City's child welfare agency, dedicated to protecting children and strengthening families

ACS Policy Library

Welcome to the Administration for Children's Services Internet Policy Library. As the City’s agency responsible for child welfare, juvenile justice, and early care and education services, we are committed to making our policies freely available, which will promote an increasingly transparent, accountable, and responsive system. We are working to catalog all of our current policies, starting with the most recent. Questions or comments can be sent to Yumi Nielsen, Director of Policy, at

You can search by one or both of the fields below. Select a year from the drop-down menu to search for all policies issued in a given year. You can also search for keywords within a policy title or description (for example, "LGBTQ," "detention," etc). You can search both categories at once, or just one at a time. Leaving both fields blank and clicking “search” will yield a full list of policies from this library.
