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.
