Excerpt from the DCFS Policy and Procedure Manual – Summary of Revision Made 06/01/12

This Procedural Guide is being updated to reflect changes made due to AB 12 being signed into law. This bill allows California to implement provisions of Public Law 110-351, the federal Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 2008. One of the provisions of AB 12, to be phased in over three years, allows California to extend Kin-GAP and AAP benefits beyond the age of 18 for eligible youth when the youth entered these arrangements at age 16 or older. Also, the Adoption Division is currently known as the Adoption and Permanency Resources Division (APRD).
