How long will emergency caregivers receive AB 110 funding?
Background: As of March 30, 2018, California families completing the resource family approval (RFA) process who have already accepted placement of a child in foster care will receive temporary funding. This funding is available in response to the plight of thousands of caregivers who have struggled over the last year to complete RFA while simultaneously caring for a child without the support of foster care funds.
A: AB 110 funding expires on June 30, 2018, at the end of the current fiscal year. Foster care funding should replace the AB 110 funding if a caregiver is approved as a resource family by June 30, 2018. If the RFA application is still pending on June 30, 2018, the funding will terminate unless the state legislature has enacted a longer-term solution before then.
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.
