Attention EBT Cardholders

A small number of Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cardholders may be experiencing issues using their EBT cards. OTDA is aware of the issue and is continuing to work closely with our EBT vendor to resolve it as quickly as possible. Those affected should contact their local department of social services about getting a temporary replacement card.

Flexible Fund for Family Services (FFFS) 2011-2012

Appropriation Level: $951,000,000

The total funding for the FFFS for SFY 2011-12 is $951,000,000. The programs that may be funded in the FFFS are as follows: allowable non-assistance TANF Employment programs (such as employment preparation, placement and retention services), TANF Services (including services to support receipt of transitional benefits and other work supports), Child Welfare Services, Emergency Assistance to Families (EAF) Foster Care Maintenance, Administration and Tuition Costs, PINS/Preventive Detention Diversion Services, Pregnancy Prevention, Drug/Alcohol (D/A) Assessment and Monitoring, Domestic Violence (DV) Screening and Assessment, EAF JD/PINS Foster Care and related costs, districts' administrative costs for all TANF related activities, or for any other allowable TANF purpose. Districts may also transfer funds from FFFS to Child Care, and/or Title XX Services (TANF-funded portion). In SFY 2011-12 child care, non-residential domestic violence services and the summer youth employment program have also been funded separately outside of the FFFS.

Districts develop and submit to the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) and the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) for approval plans which detail how they will allocate their FFFS funds. Districts generally may revise their plans as needed. Within the county allocation each district has discretion to use its FFFS funds for any Federally-allowable TANF purpose. FFFS funded services may be provided to families who are TANF eligible (recipients of Family Assistance or SN MOE with state charge code of 63 or 64) or families whose income does not exceed 200% of the federal poverty level and who meet TANF 200% eligibility criteria.

The FFFS Performance and Accountability Matrix provides information on how each district plans to use its FFFS allocation for programs administered by OTDA.
