Unaccompanied Refugee Minors Program

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.
