Fam. Code Section 264.2011
Enhanced In-home Support Program
(a)To the extent that funding is available, the department shall develop a program to strengthen families through enhanced in-home support. The program shall assist certain low-income families and children in child neglect cases in which poverty is believed to be a significant underlying cause of the neglect and in which the enhancement of in-home support appears likely to prevent removal of the child from the home or to speed reunification of the child with the family.
(b)A family that meets eligibility criteria for inclusion in the program is eligible to receive limited funding from a flexible fund account to cover nonrecurring expenses that are designed to help the family accomplish the objectives included in the family’s service plan.
(c)The executive commissioner shall adopt rules establishing:
(1)specific eligibility criteria for the program described in this section;
(2)the maximum amount of money that may be made available to a family through the flexible fund account; and
(3)the purposes for which money made available under the program may be spent.
(d)The department shall evaluate the results of the program to determine whether the program is successful in safely keeping families together. If the department determines that the program is successful, the department shall continue the program to the extent that funding is available.
