What paperwork do I need to complete in order to receive AB 110 interim funding?
In order to receive interim funding, which expires on June 30, 2018, for those who have a child placed with them on an emergency basis while RFA is pending, caregivers must have completed an RFA application.
Relatives caring for a non-federally eligible child must also sign the Approved Relative Care (ARC) application in order to receive AB 110 funding. The child’s eligibility worker will determine the child’s eligibility for federal funding and the caregiver will be provided the ARC application by the county worker, if necessary.
In addition, the Emergency Assistance (EA) application must be completed by the county worker if the child is with a non-related extended family member (NREFM), or if the child is federally eligible and placed with a relative.
AB 110 funding cannot be initiated until an RFA application is submitted. For example, for a caregiver who has not submitted an RFA application, with whom a child was placed prior to March 30, 2018, that caregiver may only receive funding from the day an RFA application is completed through June 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.
