5101:9-6-35 Chafee allocation.


The Ohio department of job and family services (ODJFS) reimburses public children services agencies (PCSAs) for delivery of independent living services to eligible youth as described in rules 5101:2-42-19 and 5101:2-42- 19.2 of the Administrative Code.

(B) The catalog of federal domestic assistance (CFDA) number is 93.674.

(C) ODJFS will communicate the period of performance and liquidation periods for this allocation through the county finance information system (CFIS). The PCSA must expend funds within the period of performance and report expenditures no later than the end of the liquidation period.

(D) Methodology

ODJFS uses the following methodology to distribute available funds:

(1) ODJFS allocates a base amount of five thousand dollars to each PCSA.

(2) ODJFS allocates the remaining balance to PCSAs based on the number of children within the county fourteen years of age and older who are in substitute care as compared to the statewide number of children in the same category as reported by the PCSA in the statewide automated child welfare information system (SACWIS) for the preceding state fiscal year (SFY).

(E) Reimbursement

(1) ODJFS reimburses expenditures with eighty per cent federal Chafee funds. The PCSA must use eligible state funding or provide local funds at a twenty per cent match rate for the nonfederal share. A PCSA may move the twenty per cent local match to the state child protective allocation (SCPA) through the local certification of funds process.

(2) Reimbursable services under this allocation are identified in the following rules:

(a) Rule 5101:2-42-19 of the Administrative Code for independent living services for a youth still in the custody of an agency; and

(b) Rule 5101:2-42-19.2 of the Administrative Code for youth who have emancipated and requested independent living services.

(c) The PCSA shall not use more than thirty per cent of these funds for room and board of the emancipated population.

(F) PCSAs shall report expenditures as described in rule 5101:9-7-29 of the Administrative Code.

(G) The definitions, requirements, and responsibilities contained in rule 5101:9-6-50 of the Administrative Code are applicable to this allocation.
