Q: Are refugee children who are placed into the Unaccompanied Refugee Minors (URM) program and receive refugee foster care services and benefits eligible for extended foster care?
A: AB 12/212 does not have any effect on children in the Unaccompanied Refugee Minors (URM) program. AB 12 concerns foster care benefits in the AFDC-FC program. AFDC-FC is paid for children who are in state foster care and is administered by the state. URM is a federal program. Children in the URM program do not receive AFDC-FC.
