This memo issues the 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 that will be used for the multiyear period of calendar years (CYs) 2002 through 2004. CYs 2002 - 2004 plans must be submitted by local agencies no later than Friday, October 15, 2001.

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. 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. Local agencies are encouraged to download the plan document format to write their local plans.
