Citizen, mother, worker debating public responsibility for child care after the Second World War by Emilie Stoltzfus( )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During World War II, American women entered the workforce in unprecedented numbers, and many of them relied on federally funded child care programs. At the end of the war, working mothers vigorously protested the termination of child care subsidies. In Citizen, Mother, Worker , Emilie Stoltzfus traces grassroots activism and national and local policy debates concerning public funding of children's day care in the two decades after the end of World War II. Using events in Cleveland, Ohio; Washington, D.C.; and the state of California, Stoltzfus identifies a prevailing belief among postwar policymakers that women could best serve the nation as homemakers. Although federal funding was briefly extended after the end of the war, grassroots campaigns for subsidized day care in Cleveland and Washington met with only limited success. In California, however, mothers asserted their importance to the state's economy as "productive citizens" and won a permanent, state-funded child care program. In addition, by the 1960s, federal child care funding gained new life as an alternative to cash aid for poor single mothers. These debates about the public's stake in what many viewed as a private matter help illuminate America's changing social, political, and fiscal priorities, as well as the meaning of female citizenship in the postwar period

Foster care, adoption and kinship guardian assistance : Title IV-E programs ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Foster care is a temporary living arrangement for children who cannot remain safely in their own homes. For nearly every child who enters foster care, a first goal of the child welfare agency is to ensure necessary services are identified, and provided, so that the child can quickly and safely return to his or her parents. Most children who leave foster care do so to be reunited with parents or other family members. For some children, however, this is not possible. In those cases, the child welfare agency must work to find a new permanent home for these children and this may be accomplished through adoption or legal guardianship. This book examines Title IV-E of the Social Security Act, which declares that states, territories, and tribes are entitled to claim partial federal reimbursement for the cost of providing foster care, adoption assistance, and kinship guardianship assistance to children who meet federal eligibility criteria. The Title IV-E program, provides support for monthly payments on behalf of eligible children, as well as funds for related case management activities, training, data collection, and other costs of program administration

Child welfare social security and supplemental security income (SSI) benefits for children in foster care by Adrienne L Fernandes( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are available under Title XVI of the Social Security Act for certain children with disabilities if their families have low incomes and minimal assets. Social Security benefits may be paid under Title II of the act to the children of workers who have retired, become disabled, or died. An estimated 30,000 children receive SSI or other Social Security benefits while in foster care. Federal regulations require that in most cases the Social Security Administration (SSA) select and assign a representative payee -- an individual, organization, or government entity -- that manages SSI and Social Security payments for children, including those in foster care. Nearly all states designated as the representative payee for a foster child use the child's benefits as a funding stream for child welfare spending. In Washington State Department of Social and Health Services v. Guardianship Estate of Keffeler (hereafter Keffeler), the Supreme Court held that the process used by the state of Washington to keep the Social Security benefits received as a child's representative payee was not prohibited by the Social Security Act. the Court also concluded that the use of funds for reimbursement for foster care services was consistent with the act's provisions that such funds be spent for the "use and benefit of the beneficiary" and within the regulatory definition of "current maintenance" (i.e., food, clothing, shelter, medical care, and personal comfort items). While the Keffeler decision supports states' practice of using SSI and other Social Security benefits for reimbursement of foster care, some child advocates remain concerned that this practice is misguided. They assert that by using a child's SSI or other Social Security benefits to reimburse the cost of foster care, the state agency is denying these children funding that rightly belongs to them. Advocates also raise concern that child welfare agencies are often automatically assigned as the representative payee for children in foster care. On the other hand, child welfare agencies and other advocates argue that if states were not able to use benefits to pay for a child's foster care room and board, then states would simply stop screening children to determine their eligibility for these Social Security programs. They further argue that if child SSI beneficiaries were given all of their benefits while in care, they would accumulate assets in the form of savings and would be above the maximum resource level needed to maintain eligibility for the SSI program. Changes governing how child welfare agencies are assigned as representative payees or how they use benefits to fund foster care under Title II and Title XVI would require congressional action. Some child welfare advocates support changes to the process for selecting representative payees, as well as increases in the asset limits for foster youth receiving SSI. They have also proposed changes to allow youth to retain a portion of their benefits. Two states -- California and New Mexico -- have recently proposed legislation to screen all youth for eligibility to give qualified foster youth some of their SSI or other Social Security benefits
