Rule 5101:9-6-08.12 | Federal fiscal year (FFY) temporary assistance for needy families (TANF) performance incentives.

 
This is an Internal Management (IM) rule governing the day-to-day staff procedures and operations within an agency.

(A) The Ohio department of job and family services (ODJFS) issues a one-time TANF performance bonus to the county department of job and family services (CDJFS).

(B) ODJFS will issue an incentive to a CDJFS that has spent at least ninety per cent of its combined TANF regular and TANF administration allocation as described in rules 5101:9-6-08 and 5101:9-6-08.8 of the Administrative Code.

(C) The TANF performance incentive consists of federal funds. The catalog of federal domestic assistance (CFDA) number for this allocation is 93.558.

(D) ODJFS communicates the funding period and liquidation period through the county finance information system (CFIS). The CDJFS can provide services through the funding period and disburse and report expenditures no later than the end of the liquidation period. Expenditures in excess of the allocation amount are the responsibility of the county agency.

(E) ODJFS allocates this funding as follows:

(1) FFY19 TANF performance incentives

(a) For SFY21, ODJFS will issue up to five million dollars in TANF performance incentives to eligible counties. The actual amount will be based on the remaining unspent balance of the FFY19 TANF regular and TANF administration allocations.

(b) ODJFS will issue FFY19 performance incentives based on each county's FFY19 final TANF regular and TANF administration allocations and expenditures. The final allocation is the amount at the end of the FFY after any increase or decrease due to budget transfers, redistributions, and inter-county transfers.

(c) ODJFS will determine a statewide incentive amount to be allocated. Counties that have spent at least ninety per cent of its combined TANF regular and TANF administration allocation will be eligible. ODJFS will use the percentage of an eligible county's total TANF expenditures as compared to the total statewide expenditure amount of all eligible counties to determine each eligible county's per cent of the statewide amount to be allocated.

(d) The incentive will be issued July 2020. Counties will have two years to use funding. The end date will be June 30, 2022 with a liquidation period ending September 30, 2022.

(2) FFY20 TANF performance incentives

(a) For SFY22, ODJFS will issue up to ten million dollars in TANF performance incentives to eligible counties. The actual amount will be based on the statewide remaining unspent balance of the FFY20 TANF regular and TANF administration allocations.

(b) ODJFS will issue FFY20 performance incentives based on each county's final FFY20 TANF regular and TANF administration allocations and expenditures. The final allocation is the amount at the end of the FFY after any increase or decrease due to budget transfers, redistributions, and inter-county transfers.

(c) ODJFS will determine a statewide incentive amount to be allocated. Counties that have spent at least ninety per cent of its combined TANF regular and TANF administration allocation will be eligible. ODJFS will use the percentage of an eligible county's total TANF expenditures as compared to the total statewide expenditure amount of all eligible counties to determine each eligible county's per cent of the statewide amount to be allocated.
