Program Descriptions


The Title IV-E Waiver Capped Allocation Project (CAP) is a federal waiver demonstration project in California. This project will provide participating counties with flexibility in their use of federal and state foster care maintenance and administrative funds that were previously restricted to payment for the care and supervision of children in out of home placements and administrative expenditures. Under the CAP, participating counties will receive a capped allocation of their Title IV-E funds to provide direct services to children and families.
