Eliminate Local Match on Non-Mandated CSA Services (language only)

Item 282 #2s

Item 282 #2s

Health and Human Resources
Children's Services Act


Page 240, after line 47, insert:

"N. Effective January 1, 2019, there shall be no local match for children eligible for Children's Services Act funding identified as non-sum sufficient and receiving evidence based services. By July 1, 2018, the Office of Children's Services shall work with stakeholders to develop guidelines and reporting requirements to train local government and other stakeholders on the desired array of programs and establish reporting requirements to monitor this initiative."


(This amendment eliminates the local match for Children's Services Act funding spent to serve non-mandated children with evidence based services. Language also requires training of stakeholders on those evidence based programs and the establishment of report requirements.)
