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.
