OCYF Monitoring Tool for Kinship Providers
March 2, 2006

The Office of Children, Youth and Families (OCYF) has alerted PCPA that the survey tool developed to monitor compliance with kinship care services will be used in future licensing surveys. OCYF regional staff will monitor compliance with kinship care requirements using this tool during their annual licensing inspections. A copy of this document is available from this link. Questions about the survey instrument should be directed to OCYF regional office representatives.

OCYF Bulletin #00-03-03, Kinship Care Policy, dated July 28, 2003 and Act 25 of 2003 includes requirements for public and private children and youth agencies that approve foster parents and kinship providers. PCPA has been advised that items of noncompliance will be addressed in the county’s plan of correction.
