Title XX: Social Services in Your State. A Child Advocate's Handbook for Action.
Children's Defense Fund, Washington, DC.
This booklet is a guide for those wishing to route Title XX money into the community programs for children. Part I discusses ways for child advocates to participate in four key stages of the Title XX planning process in their state: planning proposals, raising the 25% non-federal share of the funds required by Title XX, and publishing proposed and final plans. Legal requirements states must meet in each of these stages are described. Part II raises questions involved in the delivery of services, including funds, eligibility, fees, services, advisory committees, and child day care services. In Part III strategies for influencing existing state Title XX programs are outlined. Examples of effective child advocacy in Kansas, Texas, and Illinois are reported in Part IV. Appendices include: (1) Title XX Federal Allocations, Use, and Median Income, by State, (2) Child Day Care Expenditures in First Program Year, by State, (3) State Agencies for Title XX, and (4) H.E.W. Regional Offices. (SB)
