Eligibility Manual for Child Welfare Programs
The Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) developed this Eligibility Manual For Child Welfare Programs to provide social services districts with up-to-date, accurate guidance and requirements for determining eligibility for federal funding of child welfare programs. The manual is designed to contain all relevant policy materials and procedural information for determining and authorizing eligibility, and for encoding the State's information systems that will lead to appropriate federal claiming of funding for programmatic and administrative expenses.
