Is there an expectation of Title IV-E agencies to propose plans within their CPPs for EBP implementation, fidelity monitoring, and reporting based on the requirements listed in Appendix A of the assurances template?
No. A separate plan is not required. The Assurances Template demonstrates that the local agency agrees to participate in State level fidelity monitoring, oversight, data collection, evaluation, and coordination to determine the effectiveness of a service provider under FFPSA. The expectation is for child welfare and/or probation Title IV-E agencies to sign the Assurances Template as a required component of the CPP and comply with forthcoming state guidance. The CDSS intends to contract with a single entity to provide assistance with monitoring and tracking model fidelity.
