The "Wheels of Legal Justice" are slow to turn. In Iowa, as were in many other states, the Feds evaluated and shared the many concerns, starting in 2003 (Third Round 2018)
"Shame on US" brought this to center stage; and "We the People" need to let our legislators aware.
The federal government's dereliction allows states to fall short on meeting minimum child welfare standards. Below is information specific to Iowa.

CFSR Results Summary: In its Child and Family Services Review (CFSR) process, HHS determines whether each state is in substantial conformity with 7 specific outcomes (pertaining to the areas of safety, permanency and family and child well-being) and 7 systemic factors (relating to the quality of services delivered to children and families and the outcomes they experience). In the first two rounds of the CFSR, HHS has concluded that Iowa was:

Round 1 (2003)
NOT in substantial conformity with 5 of the 7 Outcomes
NOT in substantial conformity with 4 of the 7 Systemic Factors

Round 2 (2011)
NOT in substantial conformity with 7 of the 7 Outcomes
NOT in substantial conformity with 2 of the 7 Systemic Factors

Although federal law mandates that any state found not to be operating in substantial conformity during an initial or subsequent review must begin a full review within two years after approval of the state's program improvement plan, HHS has announced that Iowa will not undergo Round 3 of the CFSR until FY 2018 (see CFSR Technical Bulletin #7 (March 2014)).
