Start Preamble

Title: IV-E Foster Care and Adoption Financial Report.

OMB No.: 0970-0205.

Description: This form is used by States and Puerto Rico to facilitate the reporting of expenditures for the Foster Care and Adoption Assistance programs. State agencies (including Puerto Rico) use this form to report data on a quarterly basis. The form provides specific data regarding financial disbursements, obligations and estimates. It provides States with a mechanism to request grant awards and certify the availability of State matching funds. Failure to collect this data would seriously compromise the Administration for Children and Families' ability to issue grant awards and monitor expenditures. This form is also used to prepare ACF budget submission to Congress.
