Q: Do counties need to approve Resource Families for non-minor dependents (participating in extended foster care)?
A: For a non-minor dependent placed in a Supervised Independent Living Placement (SILP), Resource Family Approval (RFA) is not required. However, if the youth is placed in a foster home, RFA is required.
