Does AB 110 provide funding back to the time the child was placed in a home prior to Resource Family Approval?
No. Funding is available as of March 30, 2018. No funding is available for the period between the date of placement and March 30, 2018, if the placement occurred prior to March 30, 2018. In other words, there is no retroactive payment back to the date of placement to cover the time that a child was placed in an emergency caregiver’s home before enactment of AB 110. For example, if a child was placed in the home of a caregiver in January 2017, there is no back payment for the period between January 2017 and March 30, 2018.
NOTE: Passage of AB 1811 extends the funding initiated under AB 110, so families benefitting from AB 110 will continue to receive funding prior to RFA approval. AB 1811 also provides funding for families who accept placement after July 1, 2018 and are not yet approved as resource families. You can find more information on both types of funding here.
