TITLE IVE FUNDINGDETERMINATIONS
Title IV-E is only a funding source. To be eligible for payment under titleIV-E, children must, by Family Court or Tribal Court order, be under DHS supervision for placement and care or committed to DHS.All youth are to be screened for title IV-E eligibility at the time of acceptance. Even though an initial placement may be in a place-ment where title IV-E cannot be paid (e.g., unlicensed relatives,detention, training school, camp), eligibility may exist in subse-quent placements.If a youth has been initially determined not eligible for title IV-Efunding (based on ineligibility of the family for the former AFDCgrant program or the judicial determinations do not meet the timerequirements detailed in CFF 902-2,Required Judicial Findings),s/he will
never 
be eligible for title IV-E funding while in this place-ment episode. Therefore, SWSS FAJ will not request the informa-tion for title IV-E eligibility when regular redeterminations of appropriate foster care funding source are conducted. (See CFF902, FINANCIAL DETERMINATIONS for information on place-ment episodes.)Voluntarily released children may be eligible for title IV-E funding if there is a court order terminating parental rights and making theState Agency responsible for the child's placement and care and if all other eligibility requirements are met.Secondarily released children cannot be title IV-E eligible. A sec-ondary release is defined as: a release of a child to DHS by a pri-vate child placing agency in which the child was previouslyreleased or committed to the private child placing agency. Upon asecondary release, the child becomes a state ward.Delinquent youth committed to the department under Act 150 byadult (circuit/recorder's) courts are not eligible for title IV-E funding.Title IV-E eligibility ends when a child is placed back in his/her ownhome or with a legal guardian. A new eligibility determination mustbe completed for each new placement episode.
TITLE IVEELIGIBILITY BEGINDATE
Title IV-E foster care payments may begin from the first day of place-ment in the month in which all eligibility criteria are met. Eligibility crite-ria which must be met includes:Required judicial determinationsof “reasonable efforts” and “con- trary to the welfare” on a signed court order (see CFF 902-2).
