Extended CalWORKs for non-minor dependents

Q: If a NMD moves out of the state can they still receive extended CalWORKS after the age of 18?

A: Yes, Assembly Bill1712 clarified that extended CalWORKS benefits can be paid for a NMD placed with an approved relative living out of state while they participate in extended foster care.  A NMD may be receiving extended CalWORKS after the age of 18 if they are placed with an approved relative and the youth is not eligible for federal foster care benefits. (Reference: Welf. & Inst Code §  11253)
