Guardianship Referral

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

Guardianship Referral Overview

  1. The mission of the Child and Family Services Agency (CFSA) is to ensure the Safety, Permanence and Well Being of the abused and neglected children of the District of Columbia.
  2. The Guardianship Referral Form is located within the FACES.NET system. It was developed to initiate and track the processes of Guardianship referrals made to the Business Services Administration requesting Guardianship subsidy for children placed with kin.
  3. Much of the information that is needed for the Guardianship Referral should already exist in FACES.NET, particularly the clients’ demographic information.
  4. The Guardianship Referral process includes:
  • Social Worker submits the Guardianship Referral to the Subsidy Unit (supervisory approval needed).
  • Subsidy Unit reviews and completes the second tier approval process.
  • IV-E Unit will determine IV-E Guardianship Subsidy claiming eligibility.
