Local Foster Care Review Boards are mandated by Iowa Code §237.20 to review the case of each child receiving foster care assigned to the local board by the state board to determine whether satisfactory progress is being made toward the goals of the case permanency plan pursuant to section §237.22. Exhibit E of our Memorandum of Understanding outlines the responsibilities of the Department of Inspections and Appeals (DIA) and the Department of Human Services (DHS), as it relates to the periodic status reviews of children placed in foster care. As part of the MOU, DHS reimburses DIA for the federal share for all Child Advocacy Board costs associated with the LFCRB and DIA administrative costs involved for work performed which qualifies for federal financial participation (FFP) under Title IV-E. This includes costs associated with administering and conducting foster care administrative reviews, including the training of volunteers and personnel. As a program of ICAB, the FCRB Program receives appropriated funding from the Iowa Legislature. This appropriation pays staff salaries, benefits and other system needs such as technology, equipment and administrative resources. Foster Care Review Board volunteers serve on local community boards that meet regularly to review case plans, hear from interested parties, and provide the Court and DHS with their findings and recommendations about the safety, well-being and permanency of children from their communities who are removed from parental custody.
