Chapter 388-25 WAC

In March 2015, Fostering Connections legislation added a fifth eligibility criterion to the Extended Foster Care WACs allowing youth to be employed 80 hours or more per month. The following WACs are being amended to align with federal legislation: WAC 388-25-0110 “What is the effective date for termination of foster care payments?”, WAC 388-25-0502 “What is the purpose of the extended foster care program?”, WAC 388-25-0504 “What is extended foster care?”, WAC 388-25-0506 “Who is eligible for extended foster care?”, WAC 388-25-0540 “How does CA determine a youth's continuing eligibility for the extended foster care program?”, WAC 388-25-0546 “What must the youth do to remain in the extended foster care program?”, and WAC 388-25-0548 “When is a youth no longer eligible for the extended foster care program?”. The following WACs are being created to address the fifth eligibility criterion regarding a documented medical condition: WAC 388-25-0517 “What is considered a medical condition?” and WAC 388-25-0519 “How does a youth demonstrate he or she is unable to participate in extended foster care activities due to a documented medical condition?”.
