Rule 5101:9-6-35 | Chafee allocation.

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

(B) The assistance listing number (ALN) is 93.674.

(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.

(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 youth within the county fourteen years of age and older who are in substitute care as compared to the statewide number of youth in the same category as reported by the PCSA in the Ohio statewide child welfare information system (Ohio 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) Rule 5101:2-42-19 of the Administrative Code for independent living services for 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 only use up to thirty per cent of these funds for room and board which may include but is not limited to assistance with rent and the initial deposit pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 677.

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