Title IV-E Finance Handbook for County Contracts (Child Welfare Services, Legal Services, Training Services)

The Title IV-E Finance Handbook was published on August 11, 2009. Summaries of new or revised items are provided below.

Policy and procedure have been revised to do as follows:

  ·  Add 6000 County Training Contracts

  ·  Clarify the following:

  ·  Each county’s quarterly Title IV‑E population rate is based on the average of the percentage of Title IV-E eligible children for each of the three months in a federal quarter.

  ·  The rate is used to determine reimbursement expenditures incurred in each federal quarter: October-December, January-March, April-June, and July-September.

Previously the rate was based on the fiscal quarters used by the State of Texas.
