Re-entering foster care and the 5 participation conditions

Q:  If a non-minor wants to re-enter foster care, do they need to be meeting one of the five participation conditions (e.g. working or going to school) in order to re-enter?

A:  No. The initial meeting with a social worker temporarily satisfies the participation requirement until the TILP is completed.

According to ACL 12-12 (page 7), the young adult must agree to meet the participation conditions listed in ACL 11-61 and have a Transition Independent Living Plan (TILP) that documents which of the participation conditions the NMD will be participating in. A county has 60 days from the resumption of jurisdiction to complete the case plan and TILP with the NMD and the initial meeting with a social worker temporarily satisfies the participation requirement until the TILP is completed.
