Rule 5101:9-6-24 | Multi-system youth (MSY) funding.

 

(A) Pursuant to section 307.90 of Amended Substitute House Bill 110 of the 134th General Assembly, the Ohio department of job and family services (ODJFS) issues multi-system youth (MSY) funding to each public children services agency (PCSA) to:

(1) Prevent parental relinquishment of custody to the PCSA solely for the purpose of a child obtaining needed treatment;

(2) Support the care of children in the custody of a PCSA for congregate care; and

(3) Provide the services and supports necessary to ensure the child's successful transition from a congregate care facility following discharge.

(B) This allocation consists of state funds. The PCSA will initially deposit this allocation into the county's children services fund.

(C) ODJFS communicates the funding period and liquidation period through the county finance information system (CFIS). The PCSA can incur 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.

(D) In accordance with section 307.110 of Amended Substitute House Bill 110 of the 134th General Assembly, the PCSA will designate the following via transfer to a flexible funding pool using codes established by ODJFS to assist in supporting the local provision of services to families and children:

(1) For state fiscal year (SFY) twenty-two the PCSA will designate a minimum of ten per cent of its formula based allocation; and

(2) For SFY twenty-three the PCSA will designate a minimum of ten per cent of its formula based allocation.

(E) ODJFS allocates this funding in accordance with section 5101.14 of the Revised Code as follows:

(1) If the amount of available funds is equal to the amount appropriated for the immediately preceding fiscal year, each county will receive an amount equal to the amount it received in the immediately preceding fiscal year exclusive of any releases from or additions to the allocation or any sanctions.

(2) If the amount of available funds is less than the amount initially appropriated for the immediately preceding fiscal year, each county will receive an amount equal to the percentage of funding it received in the immediately preceding fiscal year, exclusive of any releases from or additions to the allocation or any sanctions.

(3) If the amount of available funds is more than the amount initially appropriated for the immediately preceding fiscal year, each county will receive an amount equal to the amount it received in the preceding year as a base allocation. ODJFS will allocate the amount exceeding the amount initially appropriated in the immediately preceding fiscal year as follows:

(a) Twelve per cent is divided equally among all counties.

(b) Forty-eight per cent is distributed based on the total number of county residents under the age of eighteen as compared to the total statewide residents under the age of eighteen for the most recent calendar year available.

(c) Forty per cent is distributed based on the number of county residents with incomes under the federal poverty level as compared to the statewide total of residents with incomes under the federal poverty level for the most recent calendar year available.

(F) Allowable costs associated with MSY activities and contracts are outlined in rule 5101:2-54-01 of the Administrative Code.

(G) The PCSA will report expenditures as described in rule 5101:9-7-29 of the Administrative Code.
