The purpose of this transmittal is to request October 2009 caseload data on the number of foster children supported with public funds and the number of children in families receiving TANF payments in excess of the poverty income level. These data will be used by the Department of Education in its formula to allocate school year 2009-2010 Title I grants.
This Program Instructions sets forth revised standard procedures for resolving disagreements over state-submitted caseload and expenditure data used to establish the amount of a TFAG. This issuance supersedes and rescinds the original PI on this topic (see TANF-ACF-PI-2010-01 dated June 2, 2010). A new PI is necessary because of a reorganization of the Office of Family Assistance and the need to clarify certain aspects of the process.
