(This amendment reduces $260,406 from the general fund and $99,594 from nongeneral funds the second year for the fiscal impact of Senate Bill 1338, 2021 Special Session I, which establishes the State-Funded Kinship Guardianship Assistance Program (State KinGAP), which allows payments to be made to relatives, including fictive kin, who receive custody of a child. A corresponding amendment in the Children's Services Act reflects the increase in maintenance payments from the State KinGAP program while this amendment reflects the decrease in Title IV-E program costs as some children will transition to the State-Funded Kinship Guardship Assistance Program, which has lower maintenance payments than the Title IV-E program.)
