Renewed Form ACF-202, Caseload Reduction Report.

The purpose of this transmittal is to request October 2009 caseload data on the number of foster children supported with public funds and the number of children in families receiving TANF payments in excess of the poverty income level.  These data will be used by the Department of Education in its formula to allocate school year 2009-2010 Title I grants.

This Program Instruction informs Tribes of the approval of ACF-196T by the Office of Management and Budget.  All Tribal TANF Grantees must use the new form beginning with the fourth quarter of FY 2009.
