Education And Technical Assistance to Juvenile Courts And Juvenile Court Stakeholders On Accessing Medi-Cal Benefits For Parents And Children, RFP-CFCC-22-127RB

The Judicial Council of California (“Judicial Council”) is the chief policy making agency of the California judicial system. The California Constitution directs the Judicial Council to improve the administration of justice by surveying judicial business, recommending improvements to the courts, and making recommendations annually to the Governor and the Legislature. The Judicial Council’s Court Operations and Services Division, Center for Families, Children & the Courts supports programs in court settings that improve practice and services for children, youth, parents, families and other court users.
 

When a child is removed from the custody of a parent for abuse and neglect, the court orders a list of services (case plan) for the parents to complete to address the issues of abuse or neglect that brought the family to the attention of the court. Depending on the service, there can be a sliding scale fee for parents to pay for the service or a fee for the completion certificate. Similarly, parents in reunification in the juvenile justice system are often required to complete services such as counseling. Often, the children in the juvenile justice systems also need to complete programs that may not be covered through Medi-Cal and only available for private pay.

This request seeks a proposal for one bidder to provide at least 8 trainings to juvenile court stakeholders over the time span of the project and provide extensive technical assistance to the juvenile court and juvenile court stakeholders in at least one county specifically Los Angeles on how to access and leverage funding for parents and children in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Technical assistance will include working with the child welfare agency, probation, juvenile court, juvenile court partners, and managed health care plans to determine the best way for parents, at no cost, to access services ordered in their case plan. Contractor will work with Judicial Council staff to develop a project plan and timeline for successful completion of the project as well as work directly with the local court system on implementation of the project plan.
