The Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services (DPRS), which operates the state's Child and Adult Protective Services programs, receives funding from many federal sources. Not only does the agency rely upon traditional child welfare (i.e. child protective) funding sources like Title IV-E Foster Care and Title IV-B Child Welfare Services, DPRS also receives substantial federal funding from Title XIX Medicaid, Title XX Social Services Block Grant and Title IV-A Emergency Assistance. In all sixty percent â€" $298 million â€" of DPRS's 1996 operating budget is projected to come from federal funding sources.
