(This amendment transfers funding from the Department of Social Services to the Office of the Children's Services Act for costs associated with the implementation of House Bill 933, which expands eligibility for the Kinship Guardianship Assistance program by allowing payments to be made to fictive kin who receive custody of a child of whom they had been the foster parent. The Office of Children's Services is a reimbursement-based agency. DSS has sufficient general fund dollars available for child welfare services to implement the provisions of the legislation.)
