Decision Date: 1982
Agency: DIVISION OF PUBLIC WELFARE
Synopsis: The local county welfare agency reduced respondent's monthly Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) grant from $273 to $232. The agency based its action on a determination that a 14 year old child placed in respondent's home by the Youth Advocate Pro- gram was a roomer-boarder rather than a foster child. The administrative law judge found that respondent had been re- ceiving an AFDC grant of $273 for herself and her daughter when she accepted the placement of the child in August of 1981. Respondent receives $70 a week to support the child from the Youth Advocate Program. Expenses for food, school and household supplies are to be met out of this weekly allowance. Based on N.J.A.C. 10:82-4.9 the administrative law judge concluded that the child was being provided foster care services and Was er- roneously classified as a roomer-boarder. Accordingly, the judge or- dered that the respondent's AFDC grant be recalculated in com- pliance with N.J.A.C. 10:82-4.9. Thomas Orr, Esq. for petitioner James Gavin, Esq.
