This bill would require that the infant supplement payment for any child living with a parent who receives AFDC-FC or Kin-GAP benefits be equal to the basic foster family home rate. The bill would also make a pregnant minor or nonminor dependent eligible for the infant supplement for a specified period before the expected date of birth, subject to a verification of pregnancy. Because counties would administer these extended benefits, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
