Eligibility for the Supervised Independent Living Placement

Q: Are there any categories of non-minor dependents that cannot live in a Supervised Independent Living Placement (SILP)?

A: There are not any categories of non-minor dependents that are prohibited from living in a SILP setting. In general, placement in a SILP is based on an assessment of the developmental readiness of the young adult. (All County Letter 11‐77)

Those youth receiving extended Kin‐GAP benefits, extended AAP benefits or extended AFDC‐FC benefits as a nondependent with a non‐related legal guardian are not eligible for a SILP or THP‐Plus Foster care (or any other kind of foster care placement) because they are not in foster care. These youth may live in a college dorm as long as the former guardians or adoptive parent(s) maintain the support of the youth. These youth cannot receive the payment directly since these placements are not considered a SILP placement. (All County Letter 11‐69; All County Letter 11‐77)
