(a) Federal block grant funds received for the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program pursuant to subtitle A (commencing with Section 401) of Title IV of the federal Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. Sec. 601 et seq.) may be deposited in, and shall be administered through, the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Fund, which is hereby created in the State Treasury. Upon authorization by the Director of Finance, special accounts may be established within this fund, and the fund may be used in accounting for any federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families block grant funds received from the federal government after August 22, 1996.

(b) A fund condition statement for the federal block grant received for the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program shall be provided to the Department of Finance with the estimates submitted pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 10614 whether or not the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Fund created by this section is used for the deposit and administration of those moneys.

15200.4.
  

(a) In administering the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program provided for under Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 11200), excluding provisions relating to foster care, the director may impose sanctions as provided by this section to assure adequate county administration performance. Fiscal sanctions may be imposed against a county only if the department has conducted, within the county, a statistically reliable and valid case sample with a confidence level of at least 95 percent.

(b) The director may hold counties financially liable for aid paid to ineligible persons and aid paid to eligible persons in excess of the amount to which they are entitled as represented by a dollar error rate. There shall be established annually in the Budget Act a dollar error rate standard which shall be the basis for computing a county’s liability under this section for the two subsequent quality control review periods for which error rates are generated. Counties which exceed the standard during the sanction period may be apportioned a sanction no greater than the state share of the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program payments multiplied by the amount by which the statistical measure of the lower point estimate of their error rate exceeded the standard.

(c) If a federal fiscal sanction is imposed against the state as a result of the state’s dollar error rate being above the federally established tolerance level, the director shall pass the sanction on to the counties in accordance with regulations adopted by the director which establish a method for equitable distribution of the sanction. The amount assessed to any county may be reduced or set aside if the director finds that extenuating circumstances existed and that imposition of the full sanction amount would unfairly penalize the county.

15200.5.
  

Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivision (c) of Section 15200, the county shall be responsible for 100 percent of the nonfederal share of payments to needy children eligible for AFDC-FC under the conditions of Section 11402.5, and for payments made to foster parents pursuant to Section 11410.

Sec. 1397). The transfer may be made not sooner than 30 days after notification, in writing, to the chairperson of the committee in each house of the Legislature that considers appropriations and the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, or not sooner than whatever lesser time the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee or his or her designee may, in each instance, determine.

(Added by Stats. 1997, Ch. 606, Sec. 48. Effective October 3, 1997.)

15204.2.
  

(a) It is the intent of the Legislature that the annual Budget Act appropriate state and federal funds in a single allocation to counties for the support of administrative activities undertaken by the counties to provide benefit payments to recipients of aid under Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 11200) of Part 3 and to provide required work activities and supportive services in order to efficiently and effectively carry out the purposes of that chapter.

(b) (1) No later than 30 days after the enactment of the Budget Act of 2004, the State Department of Social Services, in consultation with the County Welfare Directors Association of California, shall estimate the amount of unspent funds appropriated in the 2003–04 fiscal year single allocation described in this section.

(2) Unspent funds appropriated in the 2003–04 fiscal year single allocation, not to exceed forty million dollars ($40,000,000), shall be reappropriated to, and in augmentation of, Item 5180-101-0890 of Section 2.00 of the Budget Act of 2004. The State Department of Social Services, in consultation with the County Welfare Directors Association of California, shall develop an allocation methodology for these funds. A planning allocation, based on the estimated amount of unspent funds and the agreed upon allocation methodology, shall be provided to the counties no later than 30 days after the enactment of the Budget Act of 2004.

(c) (1) No later than 30 days after the enactment of the Budget Act of 2005, the State Department of Social Services, in consultation with the County Welfare Directors Association of California, shall estimate the amount of unspent funds appropriated in the 2004-05 fiscal year single allocation described in this section.

(2) Unspent funds appropriated in the 2004–05 fiscal year single allocation, not to exceed fifty million dollars ($50,000,000), shall be reappropriated to, and in augmentation of, Item 5180-101-0890 of Section 2.00 of the Budget Act of 2005. The State Department of Social Services, in consultation with the County Welfare Directors Association of California, shall develop an allocation methodology for these funds in order to partially offset the estimated savings due to the implementation of the quarterly reporting/prospective budgeting. A planning allocation, based on the estimated amount of unspent funds and the agreed upon allocation methodology, shall be provided to the counties no later than 30 days after the enactment of the Budget Act of 2005.

(d) The State Department of Social Services shall work with the County Welfare Directors Association of California, to determine the effect of implementation of the quarterly reporting/prospective budgeting system on eligibility activities and evaluate the impact on administrative costs.

(e) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), commencing with the 2020–21 fiscal year, the funding provided for stage one childcare, as described in Article 15.5 (commencing with Section 8350) of Chapter 2 of Part 6 of Division 1 of Title 1 of the Education Code, shall be allocated to counties separately from the single allocation described in subdivision (a) for purposes of providing direct stage one childcare services and stage one childcare-related administration pursuant to Article 15.5 of the Education Code.

(Amended by Stats. 2019, Ch. 27, Sec. 98. (SB 80) Effective June 27, 2019.)

15204.3.
  

(a) Beginning in the 2000–01 fiscal year, allocation of funds provided under Section 15204.2 shall be made, in the case of funds for benefits administration and employment services, based on projected county costs and subject to funds appropriated in the annual Budget Act for operating the CalWORKs program under Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 11200). By November 1, 1999, the department and the County Welfare Directors Association shall jointly develop the specific components of this budgeting methodology, including a process for ensuring that costs funded under the methodology are reasonable and consistent with the requirements of this chapter. It is the intent of the Legislature that limited-term housing assistance be considered as part of the cost-based allocation methodology, where appropriate.

(b) Beginning in the 2002–03 fiscal year, funding in support of all components of the CalWORKs program and all state programs funded with federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families funding shall be based on a budgeting methodology developed by the department in consultation with the counties, the California State Association of Counties, the County Welfare Directors Association, and other stakeholders, and subject to funds appropriated in the annual Budget Act for administration of the CalWORKs program under Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 11200). In developing the new methodology, the department shall consider, among other factors, the availability of state and federal funds, projected caseload, and the need for basic supportive and employment services. The department shall submit the new methodology to the policy and fiscal committees of both houses of the Legislature by November 15, 2001.

(c) Beginning in the 2002–03 fiscal year, any adjustments to the county CalWORKs single allocations, determined pursuant to Section 15204.2, for funding overlaps pertaining to both United States Department of Labor Welfare-to-Work Grant funds and state matching funds, shall reflect the most recent available data regarding the expenditures of those funds that offset the funds that counties would have otherwise spent from the CalWORKs single allocations.

(d) In the 1997–98 fiscal year, additional funds for welfare-to-work administration above GAIN allocation in the 1996–97 fiscal year shall be distributed among the counties with two-thirds allocated to all counties based on each county’s share of adults aided under Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 11200). The remaining one-third shall be allocated among only those counties that in the prior year received an allocation per average aided adult at a level less than the statewide average, and shall be distributed among those counties so that they each receive the same overall allocation per average aided adult for welfare-to-work administration.

(e) For purposes of this section, and subject to funds appropriated in the annual Budget Act, no county shall receive less for employment services than what was received in the 1997–98 fiscal year allocation for welfare-to-work administration unless a county projects that its cost will be less than its 1997–98 fiscal year allocation for employment services.

(f) (1) In the 2001–02 fiscal year, the sum of three million five hundred eighty-seven thousand dollars ($3,587,000) in state matching funds for federal welfare-to-work block grant funds appropriated by Item 5180-101-0001 of the Budget Act of 2001 is for the purpose specified in paragraph (3).

(2) (A) No later than 30 days after the receipt of fourth-quarter claims submitted by counties in accordance with this section, the department shall determine the amount of unspent funds appropriated for the 2000–01 fiscal year for the CalWORKs single allocation and the CalWORKs mental health and substance abuse allocations. The department shall also determine the amount of those funds that were appropriated from the General Fund and the amount that was appropriated from the Federal Trust Fund.

(B) The amount determined pursuant to subparagraph (A) to have been appropriated from the General Fund shall be reappropriated to Item 5180-101-0001 of the Budget Act of 2001.

(C) The amount determined pursuant to subparagraph (A) to have been appropriated from the Federal Trust Fund shall be reappropriated to Item 5180-101-0890 of the Budget Act of 2001.

(3) No later than 60 days after the receipt of fourth-quarter claims, all funds appropriated to Item 5180-101-0001 and Item 5180-101-0890 of the Budget Act of 2001 pursuant to this subdivision shall be allocated to the counties that are under equity with respect to the single allocation (excluding child care and Cal-Learn) for the 2001–02 fiscal year, according to a methodology developed by the department, in consultation with the County Welfare Directors Association.

(g) For the 2002–03 fiscal year only, the single allocation made pursuant to Section 15204.2 shall include an adjustment in the amount of one hundred twenty-eight million dollars ($128,000,000), from funds appropriated in Item 5180-101-0890, Schedule 16.30 (b) of Section 2.00 of the Budget Act of 2002. The appropriated funds shall be allocated to counties for the 2002–03 fiscal year according to a methodology determined by the department in consultation with the County Welfare Directors Association.

(Amended by Stats. 2002, Ch. 1022, Sec. 50. Effective September 28, 2002.)

15204.35.
  

(a) The State Department of Social Services shall work with representatives of county human services agencies and the County Welfare Directors Association to develop recommendations for revising the methodology used for development of the CalWORKs single allocation annual budget. As part of the process of developing these recommendations, the department shall consult with legislative staff, advocates, and organizations that represent county workers.

(b) (1) Recommendations for initial changes to the methodology for development of the CalWORKs single allocation for the 2018–19 fiscal year shall be made to the Legislature by January 10, 2018.

(2) Recommendations for additional changes to the methodology for the 2019–20 and subsequent fiscal years shall be made to the Legislature by October 1, 2018.

(c) The State Department of Social Services shall work with representatives of county human services agencies and the County Welfare Directors Association of California for purposes of continuing to develop the casework metrics used for the budgeting of funding for employment services in the CalWORKs single allocation and to develop the budgeting methodology for welfare-to-work direct services during the 2019–20 fiscal year. As part of the process of developing this budgeting methodology, the department shall consult with legislative staff, advocates, and organizations that represent county workers.

(Amended by Stats. 2019, Ch. 27, Sec. 99. (SB 80) Effective June 27, 2019.)

15204.4.
  

In addition to the funds received under Section 15204.2, counties shall be required to expend money from their own funds, either from the county’s general fund or from the social services account of the county health and welfare trust fund to support administration of programs providing services to needy families. Each county shall expend an amount for these programs that, when combined with funds expended under Section 18906.5 for administration of CalFresh, equals or exceeds the amount spent by that county for corresponding activities during the 1996–97 fiscal year. Failure to meet this required level of spending shall result in a proportionate reduction of the funds provided under Section 15204.2. In those cases the Director of Social Services shall report to the Legislature within 30 days his or her findings relative to the ability of the county, with reduced funds, to meet its obligations in administering the affected programs. The report shall include any relevant information related to the performance of the county.

(Amended by Stats. 2011, Ch. 227, Sec. 64. (AB 1400) Effective January 1, 2012.)

15204.5.
  

The department shall establish and maintain a plan whereby costs for county administration of the payment of aid grants under this part will be effectively controlled within the amounts annually appropriated for such administration. The plan, to be known as the County Administrative Cost Control Plan, shall establish standards and performance criteria, including workload, productivity and support services standards, to which counties shall adhere. The plan shall be part of a single state plan, jointly developed by the department and the State Department of Health Care Services, in conjunction with the counties, for administrative cost control for the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), CalFresh, and Medical Assistance (Medi-Cal) programs. Allocations shall be made to each county and shall be limited by and determined based upon the County Administrative Cost Control Plan. In administering the plan to control county administrative costs, the department shall not allocate state funds to cover county cost overruns which result from county failure to meet requirements of the plan. The department and the State Department of Health Care Services shall budget, administer, and allocate state funds for county administration in a uniform and a consistent manner.

(Amended by Stats. 2011, Ch. 227, Sec. 65. (AB 1400) Effective January 1, 2012.)

15204.6.
  

(a) Contingent upon a Budget Act appropriation, a Pay for Performance Program shall provide additional funding for counties that meet the standards developed according to subdivision (c) in their welfare-to-work programs under Article 3.2 (commencing with Section 11320) of Chapter 2. The state shall have no obligation to pay incentives earned that exceed the funds appropriated for the year in which the incentives were earned.

(b) To the extent that funds are appropriated, the maximum total funds available to each county each year under the Pay for Performance Program shall be 5 percent of the funds the county receives that year, less the amount for child care, from the single allocation under Section 15204.2. If funds appropriated for this section are less than the incentives earned under this subdivision, each county’s allocation under this section shall be prorated based on the amount of funds appropriated for that year.

(c) The funds available to each county under the Pay for Performance Program shall be divided each year into as many equal parts as there are measures established for the year under this subdivision. A county shall earn payment of one equal part for each improvement standard that it achieves for the year or by ranking in the top 20 percent of all counties in a measure identified in paragraphs (1), (2), (3), (4), and (5), except as provided in subparagraph (B) of paragraph (4). Counties may receive a pro rata share of incentive funds for each improvement standard. The department shall consult with the County Welfare Directors Association, legislative staff, and other stakeholders, when developing improvement standards and the methodology for earning and distributing incentives for each of the following measures:

(1) The employment rate of county CalWORKs cases.

(2) The federal participation rates of county CalWORKs cases, calculated in accordance with Section 607 of Title 42 of the United States Code, but excluding individuals who are exempt in accordance with Section 11320.3 and including sanctioned cases and cases participating in activities described in subdivision (q) of Section 11322.6. If valid data does not exist to measure this outcome, the funds for this measure shall be made available for the Pay for Performance Program in the following fiscal year.

(3) The percentage of county CalWORKs cases that have earned income three months after ceasing to receive assistance under Section 11450.

(4) (A) The percentage of county CalWORKs cases, including cases that have ceased receiving assistance in the previous two quarters, with earned income that equals or exceeds the income level for the maximum EITC amount available to a household, as determined under Section 22 of the Internal Revenue Code.

(B) This paragraph shall only become operative if the department, in consultation with the County Welfare Directors Association, legislative staff, and other stakeholders, determines that implementing its provisions will not create a substantial risk of California failing to meet federal welfare-to-work participation goals, and shall remain operative for so long as the department does not reverse that determination.

(5) Any additional measures that the department may establish in consultation with the County Welfare Directors Association, legislative staff, and other stakeholders.

(d) Performance measures, standards, outcomes, and payments to counties under subdivisions (a), (b), and (c) shall be based on the following schedule:

(1) For the performance measure described in paragraph (2) of subdivision (c), payments in fiscal year 2007–08 shall be based on outcomes for the period of July 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006, compared to outcomes for the period of January 1, 2007, through June 30, 2007, and payments in each subsequent fiscal year shall be based on outcomes for the fiscal year prior to payment, compared to outcomes for the fiscal year two years prior to payment.

(2) For all other performance measures, payments shall be based on outcomes for the fiscal year prior to payment, compared to outcomes for the fiscal year two years prior to payment.

(e) The department may make further adjustments to any of the performance measures listed under subdivision (c), in consultation with the County Welfare Directors Association, legislative staff, and other stakeholders. The act that both amends subdivision (c) and enacts this sentence in the 2007–08 Regular Session of the Legislature shall not limit the department’s authority under this subdivision.

(f) The funds paid in accordance with this section may only be used in accordance with subdivisions (f) and (g) of Section 10544.1 and only for the purpose of enhancing family self-sufficiency. Funds earned by a county in accordance with this section shall be available for expenditure in the fiscal year that they are received and the following two fiscal years. Following the period of availability, and notwithstanding any provisions of subdivision (f) of Section 10544.1 to the contrary, any unspent balance shall revert to the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant.

(g) Any funds appropriated by the Legislature for the Pay for Performance Program, but not earned by a county, shall revert to the TANF block grant at the end of the fiscal year for which the funds were appropriated.

(h) The department shall periodically publish the outcomes measured by the Pay for Performance Program, identified by county.

(i) Notwithstanding the rulemaking provisions of Chapter 3.5 (commencing with Section 11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code, the department may implement this section through all-county letters throughout the duration of the Pay for Performance Program.

(Amended by Stats. 2007, Ch. 622, Sec. 6. Effective January 1, 2008.)

15204.8.
  

(a) The Legislature may appropriate annually in the Budget Act funds to support services provided pursuant to Sections 11325.7 and 11325.8.

(b) Funds appropriated pursuant to subdivision (a) shall be allocated to the counties separately and shall be available for expenditure by the counties for services provided during the budget year. A county may move funds between the two accounts during the budget year for expenditure if necessary to meet the particular circumstances in the county. Any unexpended funds may be retained by each county for expenditure for the same purposes during the succeeding fiscal year. By November 20, 1998, each county shall report to the department on the use of these funds.

(c) Beginning January 10, 1999, the Department of Finance shall report annually to the Legislature on the extent to which funds available under subdivision (a) have not been spent and may reallocate the unexpended balances so as to better meet the need for services.

(d) No later than September 1, 2001, the department in consultation with relevant stakeholders, which may include the County Welfare Directors Association and the County Behavioral Health Directors Association of California, shall develop the allocation methodology for these funds, including the specific components to be considered in allocating the funds.

(Amended by Stats. 2015, Ch. 455, Sec. 61. (SB 804) Effective January 1, 2016.)

(b) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), beginning in the 2011–12 fiscal year, and for each fiscal year thereafter, funding and expenditures for programs and activities under this section shall be in accordance with the requirements provided in Sections 30025 and 30026.5 of the Government Code.

Notwithstanding the other provisions of this article, there shall be deducted from the moneys appropriated to each county under this article a sum equal to the state and county shares of the public assistance grant that would otherwise be payable each month for each person transferred by the department to the Department of Rehabilitation for vocational rehabilitation pursuant to an agreement under Section 10652. In the case of a member or members of a family unit receiving aid to families with dependent children, the sum to be deducted and transferred shall be equal to the state and county shares of the public assistance grant on behalf of the family. Such sum shall be transferred in the Budget Act to the Department of Rehabilitation and used to provide vocational rehabilitation services for such persons as provided in Section 10652.

(Added by Stats. 1968, Ch. 1369.)
