CAB HEALTH FRANKFORT, Ky. (11/20/13) – The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) has announced the state’s 20 top-performing child support collection partners, as well recognizing one that has made significant improvement during the past year.

The winners were announced this month at a conference in Bowling Green hosted by the CHFS Child Support Enforcement program (CSE).

The CSE administers child support enforcement jointly with local contracting officials for all 120 counties.

“In every county, our contractors are working hard for the families in their communities,” said Department for Income Support Commissioner Steve Veno, who leads the CSE. “In counties large and small, they continue to improve services so the children they serve get the financial support to which they are entitled. We are so pleased to honor these top performers.”

Contracting officials are ranked based on their paternity establishments, the establishment of child support orders, child support collections and past-due collections.

Rankings for the 2012-13 fiscal year were made based on number of active cases.

Top performing counties with 1,000 or fewer cases are as follows:
