A listing of the Emergency Fund allocations. The purpose of the Fund is to enable successful emergency placement of a child with a relative, nonrelative extended family member or foster parent, by removing barriers to such a placement. The fund may also be used to retain a placement when extenuating circumstances may alter the stability of the placement. Additionally, funds may be used to assist a prospective foster parent/home in meeting the requirements to provide care to a child. All expenditures of this funding are to be for one-time needs and not to pay for recurring expenses. [Download]
