Improving IV-A/IV-D Interface. Handbook.
National Inst. for Child Support Enforcement, Chevy Chase, MD.
Effective interface between the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (IV-A) and the Child Support Enforcement (IV-D) programs is a key factor in assisting families in becoming self-sufficient, reducing welfare expenditures, and enforcing parental responsibility to support their children. Consequently, overcoming the procedural, technological, and organizational obstacles that impede interface between these programs has become a national priority. This handbook can be used as a teaching aid during the training as well as a reference for IV-A/IV-D professionals responsible for program interface. It is organized into the following four modules: (1) the need for IV-A/IV-D interface; (2) overview of the State IV-A/IV-D programs; (3) the IV-A/IV-D interface process: IV-A's role; and (4) the IV-A/IV-D interface process: IV-D's role. The course design is structured for an audience that comprises both IV-A and IV-D workers to maximize the utility and impact of the training. Each module provides instruction on how to conduct all exercises and includes a variety of handouts and summary materials to support each training activity as necessary. (ABL)
