(This amendment provides funding to allow the Department of Social Services to employ a temporary employee or contractor to assist in the development of statewide standards for certifying adult foster care homes. Of the 32 states that have an adult foster care program, 22 require mandatory licensure. Virginia is one of eight states that rely on voluntary certification of the homes. This voluntary certification is completed by staff of the local Departments of Social Services. The standards would be developed for use by local department of social services staff and would be based on “best practices” in other states.)
