Are undocumented children and non-minor dependents eligible for funding provided through AB 110 and AB 1811 to support those in emergency placements prior to RFA approval?
Background: Assembly Bill (AB) 110 and AB 1811 provide emergency caregiver funding to California families who accept placement of a child in foster care on an emergency basis or based on a compelling reason prior to completing resource family approval (RFA). AB 110 went into effect on March 30, 2018 and was set to expire on June 30, 2018. AB 1811 extends the funding initiated under AB 110, so that families benefitting from AB 110 will continue to receive emergency caregiver funding. AB 1811 also provides funding for families who accept placement on or after July 1, 2018 and are not yet approved as resource families.
A: Yes, undocumented children and non-minor dependents are eligible for AB 110 and AB 1811 funding if they meet the funding eligibility requirements. More information about emergency caregiver funding may be found here.
