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.
