Notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of law, the amount appropriated herein, shall be available under a foster care block grant for state reimbursement of eligible social services district expendi- tures for the provision and administration of foster care services including care, maintenance, supervision, and tuition; for supervision of foster children placed in federally funded job corps programs; and for care, maintenance, supervision, and tuition for adjudicated juvenile delin- quents and persons in need of supervision placed in residential programs operated by authorized agencies and in out-of-state residential programs. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a portion of the funds are available to reimburse social services districts for the change in the maximum state aid rates established by the office of children and family services for the 2011-12 rate year pursuant to section 398-a of the social services law and sections 4003 and 4405 of the education law to reflect the continua- tion of the cost of living adjustments that became effective April 1, 2008 for payments made to foster parents and for salary and fringe benefit costs and other critical nonpersonal services costs for foster care programs as determined by the office. Social services districts must adjust the amount of payments made for care provided by congregate care and foster boarding home programs and to foster parents to reflect the cost of living adjustments in the manner specified by the office. Each authorized agency operating a congregate care or foster boarding home program in New York state for which the office sets a maximum state aid rate pursuant to section 398-a of the social services law or section 4003 or 4405 of the education law shall submit, at the time and in a manner to be determined by the office, a written certification, attesting that the funds received for the continuation of the cost of living adjust- ment to the maximum state aid rate that became effective April 1, 2008 for that program will be or were used solely in
accordance with the requirements of the cost of living adjustment established by the office. Within the amounts appropri- ated herein, state reimbursement to each social services district for services identified herein that are otherwise reim- bursable by the state from April 1, 2011 through March 31, 2012 shall be limited to a district allocation, hereinafter referred to as the district's block grant allocation. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, such block grant allo- cation shall be based, in part, on each district's claims for such costs, adjusted by the applicable cost allocation method- ology and net of any retroactive payments for the 12 month period ending June 30, 2010 that are submitted on or before Janu- ary 3, 2011 and, in part, on such other factors as determined by the office of children and family services and approved by the director of the budget. Any portion of a social services district's allocation from funds appropriated herein not claimed by such district during the state fiscal year may be used by such district for expenditures on preventive services provided pursuant to section 409-a of the social services law, independent living services and aftercare services provided pursuant to regulations of the department of family assistance, claimed by such district during the next state fiscal year up to the amount remaining from the district's foster care block grant allo- cation, provided however, that any claims for such services during the next state fiscal year in excess of such amount shall be subject to 95.4 percent of 65 percent state reimbursement exclusive of any federal funds made available for such purposes, in accordance with directives of the department of family assistance and subject to the approval of the director of the budget. Any claims submitted by a social services district for reimbursement for a particular state fiscal year for which the social services district does not receive state or federal reimbursement during that state fiscal year may not be claimed against that district's block
grant apportionment for the next state fiscal year. The office of children and family services, with the approval of the director of the budget, may reduce a district's block grant allocation by the state share decrease related to federal retroactive reimbursement for such foster care services identified herein. The office, with the approval of the director of the budget, may reduce a district's block grant allocation by the state share of disallowances or sanctions taken against the district pursuant to the social services law or federal law. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the state shall not be responsible for reimbursing a social services district and a district shall not seek state reimburse- ment for any portion of any state disal- lowance or sanction taken against the social services district, or any federal disallowance attributable to final federal agency decisions or to settlement made, on or after July 1, 1995, when such disallow- ance or sanction results from the failure of the social services district to comply with federal or state requirements, including, but not limited to, failure to document eligibility for federal or state funds in the case record; provided, howev- er, if the office determines that any federal disallowance for services provided between January 1, 1999 and May 31, 1999 results solely from the late enactment of the state legislation implementing the federal adoption and safe families act, the state shall be solely responsible for the full amount of the disallowance or sanction; provided, further, however, this provision shall be deemed to apply both prospectively and retroactively regardless of whether such sanctions or disallowances are for services provided or claims made prior to or after April 1, 2011. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any federal disallowance resulting from a federal title IV-E eligibility review or audit that uses extrapolated statistic techniques shall be passed along by the state to any and all social services
districts that the office of children and family services has determined have not complied with the title IV-E eligibility requirements or have not taken the neces- sary actions to ensure compliance with such requirements including, but not limited to, failing to: assess and fully document all the criteria and have readily available all the necessary documents to establish and continue title IV-E eligi- bility for all title IV-E eligible chil- dren within the required time frames; claim title IV-E funding only for cases that meet all of the title IV-E eligibil- ity criteria; and fully implement the social services payment system on or before April 1, 2005 for all direct and voluntary agency foster care services. Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the office of children and family services shall impose on social services districts any federal disallowance issued against the state as a result of a federal title IV-E secondary eligibility review regard- less of the date the children may have entered foster care, the date the eligi- bility or payment errors occurred, or the filing date of any federal claims for reimbursement; provided, however, that the state shall be responsible for the disal- lowed costs and expenditures related to the placement of children in a facility operated by the office of children and family services, which shall be determined in the same manner as the disallowed costs and expenditures for social services districts other than the city of New York. In order to reimburse the federal govern- ment for the full amount of any disallow- ance imposed on the state by the federal administration for children and families within the timeframes necessary to avoid any potential interest payments on such amount, the office of children and family services is authorized to immediately offset funds otherwise due to each district for a pro rata share of the total disallowed costs based on the percentage of applicable federal title IV-E claims made by that district for the relevant time period as compared to the total
applicable statewide title IV-E claims. The amount of the offset against each district will be adjusted, if necessary, upon completion of the disallowance allo- cation process. The final allocation of the amount of any federal disallowance resulting from a title IV-E secondary eligibility review shall be allocated among the districts so that each district shall be responsible for the amount attributable to each of the district's children or cases that are determined by the federal review to be unallowable. Each district shall also be responsible for a portion of the federal extrapolated disal- lowance amount based on the relative error rate for the district. The city of New York's error rate will be based on the federal sample and federal statistics. For all social services districts other than the city of New York, the error rate will be based on a review conducted by the district of a sample of children and/or cases determined by the office of children and family services and a re-review of a sub-sample by the office of those children and/or cases determined by the office. The office of children and family services will determine what is reasonable in establishing the size of the sample and sub-sample for each district. The office of children and family services shall notify each social services district of the sample of children and/or cases from the federal audit period that the social services district must review. Any child or case from the social services district that was included in the federal sample will automatically be included in the social services district's review sample and the determination made at the federal review regarding that child or case will govern for the purposes of the social services district's review. The social services district must complete and submit the results of its review to the office of children and family services within 60 days of receipt of the sample. The error rate for the district will be based on the findings of the district's review and the office of children and family services'
re-review. If a social services district does not complete its review within 60 days of receiving the sample from the office of children and family services, the office of children and family services shall assign an error rate to the social services district based on the relative percentage of the district's applicable title IV-E claims for the relevant period as compared to applicable statewide title IV-E claims for that period and other circumstances that the office of children and family services may consider in order to allocate 100 percent of the federal disallowance. The office of children and family services shall apply each social services district's error rate to the total amount of the district's applicable title IV-E claims including associated administrative expenses. The resulting dollar amounts for all of the social services districts will be summed to derive the total amount of title IV-E claims deemed to be in error statewide. To establish a disallowance percentage for each social services district, the amount of the district's title IV-E claims deemed to be in error will be divided by the amount of statewide title IV-E claims deemed to be in error. The resulting disallowance percentage for each district will be applied to the entire title IV-E extrapolated disallowance calculated by the federal review to determine the amount of the extrapolated disallowance for which the district is responsible. Each district will be credited for the amount already disallowed for any individual children or cases found to be in error during the federal review. The exclusive appeal rights for the review of the amount of the federal disallowance assigned to each social services district shall be pursuant to article 78 of the civil practice laws and rules; provided, however, that in any such action all of the social services districts shall be joined as necessary parties and the venue of any such action shall be in Rensselaer county. Any social services district that fails to complete its sample review in the required time
frames shall have no right to appeal and shall not be a necessary party to any action brought by another social services district.

and prompt payment of providers under section 367-b of the social services law pursuant to an estimate provided by the commissioner of health of each local social services district's share of payments made pursuant to section 367-b of the social services law. Notwithstanding the provisions of any other law to the contrary, the office of chil- dren and family services may, on behalf of social services districts, make payments to foster boarding homes paid directly by social services districts by direct depos- it or debit card. Local social services districts shall reimburse the office for the costs of administering such direct deposit or debit card payments. Notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of the social services law or the state finance law, the office of children and family services shall, on a quarterly basis, request that the office of tempo- rary and disability assistance reimburse the office of children and family services for the non-federal share of the costs of administering such direct deposit or debit card payments to capture the local share of such costs. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, if a social services district fails to provide reimbursement to the office of children and family services pursuant to section 529 of the executive law within 60 days of receiving a bill for services under such section, or by the date certain set by such office for providing reimbursement, whichever is later, the offices of the department of family assistance are authorized to exercise the state's set-off rights by withholding any amounts due and owing to such district under this appropriation, up to such amounts due and owing to the state under section 529 of the executive law and transferring such funds to the miscella- neous special revenue fund (339) youth facility per diem account (YF) ............. 436,002,000 Notwithstanding paragraph (a) of subdivision 1 of section 153-k of the social services law and any other provision of law to the contrary, for state fiscal year 2011-2012,

The money hereby appropriated is to be available for payment of state aid hereto- fore accrued or hereafter to accrue to municipalities. Subject to the approval of the director of the budget, the money hereby appropriated shall be available to the office net of disallowances, refunds, reimbursements, and credits; provided, however, that notwithstanding any other provision of law, for a district to receive reimbursement for such services, the amount of funds that the district expends on such services from its flexible fund for family services allocation and any flexible fund for family services
funds transferred at the district's request to the title XX social services block grant must, to the extent that fami- lies are eligible therefore, be equal to or greater than the district's portion of the $342,322,341 statewide child welfare threshold amount, which shall be estab- lished pursuant to a formula developed by the office of temporary and disability assistance and the office of children and family services and approved by the direc- tor of the budget and the amount of title XX funds the district expends on such services must, to the extent that the families are eligible therefore, be equal to or greater than the district's portion of the title XX social services block grant funds allocated to such district for such services.
