The following facts are specific to deprived cases, to include, IV-E Foster Care E and F case types, and Kinship Foster Care.
IV-E Foster Care – F case type
IV‐E foster care is a foster care case that qualifies for Federal funding. The determination of whether a case is IV‐E or non‐IV‐E is based on the resources of the household (e.g., income, property, vehicle value, etc.) from which the child was removed. If a household would qualify for Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) using the AFDC rules in effect as of July 16, 1996, it becomes an IV‐E Foster Care case.
NOTE: Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) was replaced by the more restrictive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) in 1996 as a result of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA).
Non-IV-E Foster Care – E case type
A non‐IV‐E Foster Care case is a Foster Care case that does not qualify as an IV‐E case. A non‐IV‐E case is funded by the state.
Kinship Foster Care
Child Welfare looks for relative kinship placements in many of the deprived cases. Kinship placements can be very complex. Review the Policy defining a kinship placement that includes instructions to staff.
