This memo issues the CY 2001 local plan guidelines for services and projects funded under the Title IV-E Incentive (IV-E) program and the Safe and Stable Families (SSF) program -- formerly the Family Preservation and Support program. CY 2001 plans must be submitted by local agencies no later than Friday, December 15, 2000.
The CY 2001 plan guidelines are designed to allow counties, at local discretion, to submit either a combined IV-E and SSF plan or separate IV-E and SSF plans. The same plan guidelines apply to both programs, although certain provisions in the plan guidelines are applicable to only one program or the other. Local agencies are encouraged to coordinate their local planning for the two programs and use similar outcome measures for both funding sources.
The attached plan instructions explain the requirements for plan submission and the attached plan document includes the format for local plans. The plan instructions and plan document can be found on the DHFS web site at www.dhfs.state.wi.us under DCFS numbered memos and local agencies are encouraged to download the plan document format to write their local plans.
