As the result of
the passage of AB 2876, foster children are entitled to receive a
supplemental clothing allowance of $100.00 per year, subject to the
availability of funds. This
clothing allowance is used to supplement, and not supplant, the regular
initial/replacement or back-to-school clothing allowances.
This allowance will be issued to all foster family homes (including
non-Kin-GAP relatives) and to foster family agencies.
Group homes are excluded.
automatic allowance is scheduled to be issued on April 18, 2001.
The warrants will include a stuffer notice to inform the caregiver
of the purpose of the check. Because this is an automatic issuance, staff
need not take any action.
