On March 13, 2018, Governor Brown signed AB 110 which will provide financial relief for families who accept placement prior to Resource Family Approval (RFA). The bill provides for immediate funding for relatives and non-related extended family members who accept placement of a child prior to being approved as a resource family through June 30, 2018. A long-term solution is being discussed in order to ensure that families can continue to be supported at the time of placement beyond June 30, 2018.
The State Department of Social Services issued an All County Letter (ACL) on March 30 to advise counties on how to implement the interim funding enacted by AB 110. This webinar will provide an in-depth explanation of the changes enacted by AB 110 and how to access the financial relief now available. We will also discuss crucial next steps including AB 2183 and a California budget ask to ensure a long-term solution to funding at the time of placement beyond June 30, 2018.
