Determining Title IV-E Eligible Reasonable Candidates

Title IV-E of the Social Security Act was enacted to provide funding for the administrative services required to place or prevent the placement of qualified children/youth. Use of this funding was subsequently extended to juvenile probation youth. Participating Intake, Supervision Probation Officers and Supervisors will:
•    Understand the purposes of Title IV-E funding
•    Identify qualified IV-E candidates
•    Use the Evaluation of Title IV-E Reasonable Candidate and Imminent Risk tool
•    Document candidacy using the case plan
•    Know when to cease IV-E claiming

Any Probation Officer who has direct support/supervision to youth who are receiving Title IV-E funding, including counties who may contract with third parties MUST receive this training as part of the California Corrective Action Plan. 

As a result, participants will be able to accurately document qualified youth as IV-E Reasonable Candidates.
