Can counties retroactively claim for federal Title IV-E prevention service expenses? *This question and response was updated as of April 2023.
Since the approval of California’s Title IV-E Prevention Plan on April 7, 2023, federal financial participation is available for specified administrative activities related to the implementation of Title IV-E prevention services. It is anticipated these allowable administrative activities may be retroactively claimed from
October 1, 2021, if the county has manually tracked its activities for reimbursement. However, this retroactive claiming will not include reimbursement for service costs for a child or family. Further information can be found in CFL No. 21- 22-110.
