TO: STATE ADMINISTRATORS OF STATE PUBLIC WELFARE AGENCIES, CHILD WELFARE SERVICES STATE GRANT PROGRAM (TITLE IV-B OF THE SOCIAL SECURITY ACT)
SUBJECT: Apportionment of Funds to States and Territories - Fiscal Year 1989
CONTENT: Congress has approved for FY 1989 a total of $246,679,000 for the Child Welfare Services State Grant Program (title IV-B of the Social Security Act - the Act). The amount of each State's allotment for the fiscal year has been determined and is listed in the attached table. There are no extra requirements for States to meet in order to be eligible for their share of $141,000,000. States meeting the requirements of section 427(a) or 427(b) of the Act are entitled to their share of $246,679,000.
ATTACHMENTS: Attached is a State table listing the apportionment of Federal Child Welfare Services State Grant funds for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1989 at the $141,000,000 level and at the $246,679,000 level. The apportionment table should be used by States and Territories in preparing their FY 1989 Annual Budget Request (Form CWS-101). In order to avoid confusion over the type of request, we are urging States to use the Annual Budget Request now in effect, and to designate on the form the funds for which the State is applying: Allotment (funds allotted directly to the State), Reallotment, or Transfer.
ACTION REQUIRED: States meeting the requirements of Section 427(a) or (b) of the Act may request their full share of $246,679,000. The amount of the allotment should be equally distributed over the four quarters. Requests for reallotted funds or funds transferred from title IV-E-Foster Care to title IV-B should be requested for the fourth quarter, as a part of an increased fourth quarter request. Reallotment requests may be submitted at any time before the deadline set in the annual transmittal on that subject. States not meeting the requirements for Section 427 funds may request their full share of $141,000,000, equally distributed over the four quarters.
States that currently have requested less than the amount for which they are eligible must send in revised requests in order to receive their full share of funds. In all cases, if the State's jointly-developed State plan and their Annual Summary of Child Welfare Services do not incorporate plans up to the level of their revised request, they must also be revised and submitted. Under section 428 of the Act and 45 CFR 1357.40, direct grants will be made to eligible Indian Tribal Organizations (ITOs). The amount of their allotments will also be determined by the amount appropriated and allotted to the States. A separate announcement is being sent to eligible ITOs.
States and Territories should send their original CWS-101s (signed and dated) to:
Administration for Children, Youth and Families
Formula Grants Division
P.O. Box 1182
Washington, D.C. 20013
A copy of the CWS-101 should be sent to the appropriate regional office, where staff will review the request for completeness and accuracy and will ensure that the State Plan and Annual Summary have been approved at the same funding levels before forwarding them to the central office. States should be certain that they have properly signed and dated the documents. If any of the requirements regarding these documents have not been met, regional office staff will contact the States to request necessary action.
