Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
There is no Net County Cost impact associated with this Agreement 220-S1411.  This Agreement is 100% funded by the Protective Services Realignment allocation that the County receives each year from the State.  There is no County match requirement.  Sufficient appropriations are included in the Fiscal Year 2013-14 budget.
 
Background
The Kinship Support Services Program ("KSSP") was authorized by California Assembly Bill 1193 (Chapter 794, Statutes of 1997) and set forth in Welfare and Institutions Code Section 16605.  The purpose of KSSP is to provide community-based family support services to relative caregivers and the children they are caring for.  The County submitted a successful proposal to the California Department of Social Services ("CDSS") for a start-up KSSP on August 27, 2007.  On November 27, 2007, the County of El Dorado Board of Supervisors awarded Request for Proposal 08-918-020 to Lilliput Children's Services, the sole responder for the provision of KSSP services (Legistar File 07-1859), and El Dorado County has been contracting with Lilliput for the services continuously through June 30, 2013.
 
Reason for Recommendation
The KSSP assists kinship caregivers in understanding and accessing services available to dependent children living with relatives other than their own parents, thereby reducing the number of children who are entering the traditional foster care system.  The ultimate goal of the KSSP is to strengthen families while providing a safe, stable, and nurturing environment for the children.  Agreement for Services 220-S1411 allows for the continued provision of KSSP services by Lilliput Children's Services with no net County cost.
 
The Health and Human Services Agency anticipates conducting a solicitation to continue these services in Fiscal Year 2014/15.
